So, you’re thinking of having a romantic break to Market Harborough with your partner. Rest be assured that Market Harborough has plenty to offer. Full of historical charm, cobbled streets and picturesque buildings, it is an ideal setting for a romantic couple’s getaway.

Middle Aged Couple Walking Through town

Based in the heart of the town, on the High Street, we have plenty of couples come through our doors for long-weekends away and we often get asked what we recommend they do with their time in the town. To help, here are some of the most popular activities we recommend couples do on their getaway to Market Harborough.

Kelmarsh Hall

Just five miles south of Market Harborough is Kelmash Hall and Gardens. A Grade I listed country house built in 1732, the building and surroundings have retained much of their original charm and is a perfect spot for a day’s exploring. The romantic gardens provide the perfect scenery for a stroll and the hall itself will impress with its impeccable interior.

Through summer, the hall, gardens and estate are open every Sunday and some days in the week.

Foxton Locks

At Foxton Locks, you can walk around the canals or hop on a passenger boat trip that will take you on a voyage around the surroundings. Go for a drink in some of the pubs you’ll walk past and set up a picnic spot in this beautiful scenery.

Afternoon tea

Farndon Fields farm shop is local’s favourite in Market Harborough. A family run business, they have a range of cakes, scones and sandwiches available. We recommend making a stop for afternoon tea. This is a beautiful location to indulge in one of Britain’s finest traditions.

Night entertainment

From Market Harborough theatre to De Montfort Hall in Leicester, there is plenty of night-time options for couples year-round. Whether you enjoy concerts and show performances from big stars or more intimate local shows, there’s always something to keep you entertained.

Wine and dine

Food, glorious food. The perfect way to top off a wonderful day with your partner is to sit down, relax and enjoy the finest food and drink. If you’re staying in our 16th century coaching inn, it won’t take you long to find a high- quality option either.
