Back in ancient Rome, Bacchus, god of pleasure and partying was the guy responsible for making sure we all had a good time. Nowadays, it's down to us to sort ourselves out; but it doesn't have to be as hard as all that. Break out your toga for a couple of nights that have already gone down in history courtesy of this Escape to The Wroxeter Hotel, Shropshire.

You and your gladiator will lay your sandals at the Shropshire hotel for two nights between Sunday and Thursday for £129 (up to a £270 value). Minerva would be proud of your smart decision to bunk down in a standard double room that features elaborate period décor, en suite with amenities, TV, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and Wi-Fi access. The hotel has also been awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

You can expect more than a Caesar salad with your stay; instead, it comes with full English breakfast each morning and—wait for it—a Roman-style banquet on one night that features wine and no less than 16 dishes. Forget being fed a measly bunch of grapes; you'll tuck into a menu that's inspired by Trimalchio's zodiac signs, and includes dishes such as beef consommé with fine strips of prime beef, figs steeped in spiced honey, rack of pork ribs, and sweet tarts stuffed with nuts and raisins.

Follow our straight roads to nearby historic sites such as the Roman Villa Urbana—as featured in Channel 4's Rome Wasn't Built in a Day—the English Heritage Roman City of Wroxeter, and the Roman vineyard, which naturally offers wine tastings. If you'd rather go beyond the Empire, Shrewsbury isn't far and is home to Shrewsbury Castle, Darwin House, The Porch House, The Medieval Town, and World Heritage Sites the Ironbridge Gorge and Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal.

This Escape is for two people. It is available for stays on Sunday to Thursday. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at escapes.uk@livingsocial.com—be sure to quote the name of the property.

  • "Once the fourth largest city in Roman Britain, visitors to Wroxeter today can take a tour around the fascinating ruins, and explore the new Roman Town House, constructed as part of Channel 4’s ‘Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day’."
