From its handsome tudor architecture to its picturesque riverside setting, Shrewsbury is a little town with a big character—it can even boast the world's tallest town crier, standing at an impressive 7'2''. Fall for its charms with an Escape to The Lion Hotel.

Stay in this Grade I listed hotel, located amongst the winding streets of Mardol in the town centre, for one night for £99 (up to a £188.40 value), or two nights for £149 (up to a £305.90 value). Two people will bed down in a Standard room, where the likes of Charles Dickens, Darwin, and Pagnini have once stayed; though these days, the characterful rooms have been chicly updated for the 21st century.

In addition to a full English breakfast served on each morning, the first evening of your stay will include a three-course table d'hôte dinner in the hotel's own Hayward Restaurant, offering an elegant take on classic British cuisine. Sample the likes of dill cured salmon with new potato and chives to start, followed by slow-cooked belly of pork with mustard mash and fennel and apple sauce, all topped off with toffee apple sponge pudding.

Nestled in a crook of the River Severn, Shrewsbury is packed with cosy cafés, characterful pubs, and stylish boutiques. You could take a drink in The Boathouse, or catch a film at the independent Old Market Hall cinema; or even head out to the Church Stretton hills for some invigorating rambles.
