The perfect place to stay in Warwickshire

The White Swan Hotel at Henley-in-Arden is ideal when you’re visiting the Midlands for business or pleasure. 

The poet William Shenstone (1714–1763) was inspired by The White Swan to write his famous lines:

Whoever has travelled life’s dull round, Wherever his stages may have been, May sigh to think he still has found, The warmest welcome at an inn.

Free car park

When you stay at or just visit the White Swan Hotel, you can park right outside. The car park is accessed via the driveway that runs up the right hand side of the building. Or park the car and have a wander around historic Henley-in-Arden – then pop in for a reviving drink, lunch or book STONEAGED for an evening meal. If tapas is your thing, then grab a table in the bar.

Location of the White Swan

There is plenty of character and atmosphere to soak up at The White Swan. An Inn has existed on this site since 1352 and The White Swan was first documented in 1358.

We are only 9 miles from Warwick, with its famous Warwick Castle and all-year events. Even closer is Stratford-upon-Avon, with its Shakespeare connections and the wonderful Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company. A short drive in the opposite direction brings you to the NEC, Resorts World Birmingham and the Genting Arena with international exhibitions and concerts featuring the world’s top performers.

Whilst being located in the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful Warwickshire countryside, The White Swan Hotel is only a short drive or journey by rail from our local station into Birmingham. With its magnificent Bullring Centre and iconic Selfridges building, theatres, art galleries, Symphony Hall, The International Conference Centre, The National Indoor Arena, the National Sealife Centre and vibrant nightlife all in one area, you will will be amazed and delighted by the transformation the city has undergone in the past 20 years.

And of course, there is Henley-in-Arden itself. In modern times, Henley is best known for its ice cream and High Street, described as the most beautiful in England.

A warm, hospitable and comfortable hotel, redolent of historic coaching inns. Personal service and attention to detail were defining factors.
