Wiltshire is famous for its ancient, historic places; Stonehenge, Avebury Stone Circle, Salisbury Cathedral. But there is a historic place that is less well-known, one that was built in 1220 for the stonemasons constructing Salisbury Cathedral—the BEST WESTERN Red Lion Hotel.

Reputed to be the oldest hotel in Europe, a two-night stay for two people between Monday and Friday in May for £89 (up to a £210 value). The characterful hotel in the centre of Salisbury was originally the White Bear Inn, and in the Middle Ages, there was a cage and ducking stool in the water outside where nags and cheats were punished. No need to fear; that medieval treatment has long gone, and the charming hotel now provides high-quality service with all the modern amenities you need for a comfortable Escape in the beautifully appointed rooms.

The Vine Restaurant offers fine cuisine such as lime, coriander, and soy-infused swordfish. Breakfast is included.

Take a four-minute stroll to Salisbury Cathedral, one of the most striking medieval cathedrals in Britain with the tallest spire, or drive 15 minutes to Stonehenge to see the most famous stone circle in the world. Finish the day with a visit to isolated Old Sarum, an Iron Age hill fort and the original settlement of Salisbury.

This Escape is for two people. Upgrades are available to feature rooms and suites for £20 per room, per night.

  • "Browse interesting independent shops in the market towns; stroll around quintessential English hamlets such as Lacock and Castle Combe; or discover an outstanding collection of stately homes and gardens."
