Hotels in Hinckley
Hinckley has often been at the centre of historic, industrial and cultural moments that have transformed and defined the country. Home of Stilton Cheese, world renowned ales and the humble pork pie, Hinckley offers the very best of the North.
There are a wide range of affordable Hinckley hotels specialising in catering to all your needs and requirements.
A short distance from the town is the field of Bosworth, site of the climactic battle of the Wars of the Roses. King Richard III, the last English king to die in battle, met his grisly end on this field and a friendly, informative visitor centre brings the fateful day to life with re-enactments, tours and hands-on exhibits.
In nearby Leicester, there's plenty to interest those keen on exploring how the end of the Plantagenet line and the emergence of the powerful Tudor dynasty was a turning point in British history. Richard III's newly unveiled tomb in Leicester Cathedral is a focal point for visitors and history buffs with a number of exhibits dedicated to honouring the once lost – but still controversial – king. A fine statue of Richard III, standing outside the cathedral in full battle dress with his crown, illustrates the drama and link of the area to this famous battle.
Industry is an important part of Hinckley's heritage and contemporary life. Bike enthusiasts will enjoy the Triumph Motorcycle Factory with the luxury sports car maker, Noble Automotive, tantalising sports car fans.
The Abbey Pumping Station, Leicester's science and technology museum, offers the ultimate experience from a bygone age of steam and iron. Set in impressive surroundings, the industrial heritage of Hinckley and the North is an enjoyably interactive museum whose great mechanisms, engines and machinery will have both children and adults in awe at the ingenuity of the Industrial Revolution.
Next door to the museum and a surprising oddity of the area is the National Space Centre. The distinctive Rocket Tower is a delightful feature on the landscape, with the contents of the centre detailing the story of British space exploration with fun exhibits, real rockets and satellites that will be a favourite for any budding rocket scientists.
Closer to your hotel in Hinckley, Stock Golding church is an impressive Saxon church that witnessed the impromptu coronation of King Henry VII after the Battle of Bosworth Field.
After all that drama, one can relax and enjoy lovely, honest food at the popular Lime Kilns Inn. A traditional pub situated on the scenic Ashby Canal, it's a perfect destination after a day's sightseeing.
