Hotels in Banbury

Banbury is perhaps best known for its delicious cakes, which have been produced at the settlement since the 16th century and have been shipped all over the world, from Asia and America to Australasia. This historic market centre was also home to an impressive castle, which was built in the 12th century but was demolished shortly after the English Civil War.

A history

This area was inhabited as far back as the Iron Age and was originally a quiet Saxon settlement, featuring a few mills by the Norman period. The demolition of the castle after the English Civil War was a testament to Banbury's prominent role in the tumultuous conflict that led to the destruction of many other medieval castles in the area. At the Reindeer Inn, it is alleged that Oliver Cromwell prepared a plan for the Battle of Edge Hill, which took place near Edge Hill in Warwickshire in 1642 and ended in an inconclusive result for the Royalists and Parliamentarians.

By the time of the Industrial Revolution, Banbury was linked to the Oxford Canal, which enabled the town to acquire large amounts of coal from further north. The town was also home to a thriving wool trade by the late Middle Ages, and held a substantial cattle market until the end of the 20th century.

What to do

See Banbury Museum, which features a tourist information centre and exhibits the town's proud industrial and military heritage. Another site you won't want to miss is the Banbury Cross, which was built in the Victorian period, although several other much older crosses had stood over the settlement until the end of the 16th century.

Day trip suggestions

For some picture-postcard scenery, head to the Cotswolds and explore some of England's most handsome settlements such as Bourton-on-the-Water, Bibury, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh. Another famous attraction just a short drive away is Blenheim Palace, which is one of Britain's greatest stately homes and the birthplace of Winston Churchill.

You should also consider a day trip to Oxford, the City of Dreaming Spires and the home of the internationally acclaimed Bodleian Library and Natural History Museum. Wander around the grounds of the enchanting medieval colleges of one of the world's oldest and most prestigious universities, have a punt on the River Cherwell, or spend some time in the city's fantastic riverside pubs.

Hotels

For great value for money, choose the contemporary Holiday Inn Express Banbury M40 Jct.11, which is convenient for people looking to explore the wider region. One of the most luxurious Banbury hotels is the Deddington Arms Hotel, a beautiful 16th-century former country inn featuring an award-winning restaurant.
