THE UNITED KINGDOM – The Charles 1 Suite

  • The Charles 1 Suite
    • Following an expansive renovation, this 600yr old luxury Coaching Inn located in the beloved Cotswolds offers guests a chance to step back in time. When you’re not in your complimentary Hunter Wellington boots exploring Broadway’s shops and galleries and breath-taking countryside views — kick back and relax in The Charles 1 Suite where King Charles stayed before battle and during the British Civil War in 1649! With a fitting Coat of Arms above the traditional fireplace to mark his royal visit, a magnificent four-poster bed continues this truly regal accommodation.
    • Fun fact: The Lygon Arms has served as a haven of passion for celebrity guests including Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who escaped here in 1963 at the height of their scandalous affair!
