Luxury has been a requirement for the worldwide middle class for a long time, but research suggests this is no longer enough. Frequent travellers are expanding their criteria; they now want an immersive experience; an interesting story to take home and with so many options available, only the very best will do.
Heritage tourism is booming, worth 26bn last year, with 11 million visits to castles and historic houses.
British History Breaks has responded to this growing trend; scouring the country for the most interesting historic hotels that have fascinating stories at their very core.
The team behind British History Breaks have been exceptionally selective, launching with 15 of the finest country houses, castle hotels and luxury historic hotels across England, Scotland and Wales. Each property has been refurbished to the highest standard and has an authentic connection to an important character or event from British history.
For Britons seeking a cultural luxury staycation and International tourists who want more than luxury alone, British History Breaks is the first website designed to cater to their needs. It reveals the true stories behind the historic properties, plus room recommendations and exclusive incentives. These could be such things as complimentary room upgrades, historic books and champagne cream teas, simply by mentioning British History Breaks at time of booking.
Customers are encouraged to book direct for the most competitive rates and local knowledge, or they can take advantage of BHB’s personal service to help coordinate their dream trip.
Lewis Stallard, co-founder of British History Breaks says: “For many travellers accommodation is no longer just a place to lay their head, especially in Britain where there is so much history for visitors to enjoy. Our site opens the gateway for customers to follow in the footsteps of the incredible poets, wonder at the works of exceptional architects and sleep under the same roof as monarchs from history whose influence changed the way world works today.
“We have selected the most interesting and impressive properties in each location, so rather than spend a UK trip at a luxurious London hotel we are appealing to International tourists and Brits who want something more - a cultural break and a chance to experience what makes Britain so unique; our heritage.”
