Hotels in Hungerford
Hungerford is a historic market town in Berkshire, a county in southern England. The town has excellent transport links and a Hungerford hotel is ideally located for a day visit to London. However, with so much to do in and around Hungerford itself, you may find you have no time to go any further afield.
A walk around Hungerford is the best way to see this charming old town. Once a bustling commercial area, Hungerford Wharf is now an oasis of tranquility. Walk along the canal while the kids feed the ducks, or sit on the lock and watch the barges drift by.
After you've strolled the beautiful Kennet and Avon Canal, take a detour back into town via St. Mary's Church. This small church, on Ermin Street, is steeped in history and has a gorgeous medieval knave.
Also worth a visit is St. Lawrence's Church, which stands in a scenic location next to the canal. The church has been rebuilt many times in its history including, most recently, in 1815, when it was given a magnificent Gothic steeple.
Hungerford, harking back to its commercial heritage, is now an important centre of the antiques trade. Most of the antique shops are on the High Street and the adjacent Charnham Street.
The largest of these is Hungerford Arcade, which has two floors of some of the rarest antiquarian furniture and homewares you will find. Round the corner, Youll's Antiques is smaller but with an equally rich stock.
Whether or not you're in town specifically to shop, you're guaranteed to find something you like in one of Hungerford's renowned antique stores.
Hunger need not be the name of the game while you are in town, because Hungerford has some excellent restaurants in which to take refuge after a long day of shopping. At Eliane, you will get some of the best Asian fusion food you will find anywhere, with the Lebanese dishes being especially good.
For a more formal dining experience, The Walmesley, in the middle of town, offers up great modern Anglo-French cuisine and, with its lavish interior decor, is a lovely place to have afternoon tea.
After your meal, head to The Tally Ho, on the outskirts of the town, for a nightcap you won't forget quickly. This quaint redbrick pub also has a full menu of quality dishes, if you're still feeling peckish.
