A busy market town in Oxfordshire, Banbury is located in the heart of the sweeping hills of the Cherwell Valley. One of our hotels in Banbury, the Mercure Whately Hall, is conveniently located in the middle of town – just a six-minute taxi from Banbury train station or five minutes off of junction 11 of the M40. For those with a few hours spare, you have to seek out one of the town’s famous bakes. A spiced, currant-filled cake, similar to an Eccles, a Banbury cake is oval in shape and only made in the local area. The hotel is also well located if planning a visit to Broughton Castle during the summer months, when it’s open to the public every Sunday. The moated and fortified manor has sections that are more than 700 years old, so it’s worth spending an afternoon at the house and gardens even if it wasn’t previously on your to-do list. If looking for things a bit further afield, you’re in luck. The rolling hills of the Cotswolds are just a short drive from Banbury, and the area of natural beauty stretching across five counties. Chipping Norton and its famous ‘set’ is only 12 miles from Banbury, but the jewel in the crown has to be Bourton-on-the-Water. The ‘little Venice’ of the Cotswolds, it’s well worth making the journey to Bourton and taking in the picturesque sights during your stay in Banbury. After a long day of exploring what Banbury has to offer, you’ll be glad to return to our Mercure hotel, with our attentive staff on hand for any need you may have.
