Charles Dickens may forever be linked with the capital, but there was another part of the country with which he closely identified—and which cropped up regularly in his works. But rather than keeping an eye out for Shropshire in Great Expectations or The Old Curiosity Shop, experience for yourself the unspoilt landscape that Dickens fell in love with at The Raven Hotel and Restaurant.

For £175 (up to a £396 value), you'll enjoy a two-night stay for two in the town of Much Wenlock, located roughly 18 miles south of Shrewsbury. In the heart of this charming market community you'll find the lovingly maintained, centuries-old Raven; settle in to your room and where period elegance combines with modern comfort.

Included with your stay is a seven-course gourmet dinner each in the hotel's highly regarded restaurant, serving cuisine fit for any gentleman-to-be. Sourcing ingredients from the many award-winning suppliers in the county, the fine food is fresh and adventurous; and come morning, you'll get to recharge with breakfast.

Much Wenlock has a big history that belies its small size, from the Priory that fell foul of Henry VIII's dissolution to the Wenlock Olympian Games—though the independent clothing and food shops provide modern-day distractions. Nearby Shrewsbury is well worth a visit too, a well-preserved Tudor town nestled in a crook of the River Severn.

This Escape is for two people, with availability for all seven days of the week. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at escapes.uk@livingsocial.com.

  • "This small, half-timbered, red-brick, lobelia-hung, narrow-streeted, alleywayed, book-and-tea-shopped town, with its Elizabethan guildhall, is the supreme delight of urban-pastoral Britain."
