Local and Community History Month


Running throughout May, Local and Community History Month was conceived with the purpose of increasing awareness of local history, promoting it and encouraging the exploration of one’s community history. It’s a true celebration which supports learning all about the global historical connections that shape the country’s regional areas.

With 27 hotels dotted across England, Scotland and Wales, we have the privilege of being situated in many historic locations. This makes now the perfect time to visit local museums, galleries, places of interest and immerse yourself in local cultural heritage during a staycation holiday.

Here are a few of our historically rich hotel locations:

Chester

This beautiful city is known now for its fabulous shopping quarter and its award-winning zoo.

Chester was however founded by the Romans, over 2,000 years ago!

After being the most significant Roman settlement in the first century AD, Chester was invaded by the Vikings, before becoming the seat of the first Earl of Chester in 1066.

Throughout each subsequent period of history, Chester has featured as a place of importance.

To uncover its real history and step into an immersive history of this magnificent city, visit:

The wider county of Cheshire is also steeped in history. The rolling hills and surrounding countryside tells many stories. Check out this Wikipedia list of Cheshire museums, each well worth an hour or two of your time.

We have two hotels in Chester; Hallmark Inn Chester and the famous Hallmark Hotel Chester The Queen where you can relax in comfort and drink in the city’s fascinating stories.

Stratford-upon-Avon

Founded by the Saxons in the 7th Century AD, Stratford-upon-Avon went from being a small village to a prospering market town by the 12th century.

Then its history changed forever on a day in 1564 by becoming the birthplace of the most famous playwright in history. Today, Stratford’s picturesque riverside setting and connection to William Shakespeare attracts 2.5 to 3 million visitors a year.

When staying with us at the celebrated Hallmark Hotel Stratford-Upon-Avon, The Welcombe, we recommend investigating the following places if you want to really delve into this town’s history and heritage:

Manchester

Established in AD 79, this vibrant city began as a Roman fort in Celtic Britain.

After the Norman conquest, Manchester struggled with territorial battles and Viking invasions (a ditch that was built to protect the city still exists to this day). 

By the 12th century, Manchester had become a busy market town with a thriving wool industry. Throughout the following centuries, industry and innovation were the defining elements of Manchester’s growth and development – a legacy that remains to this day.

In 1830, Manchester opened the very first steam passenger railway in the world along with the world’s first industrial estate. Always at the forefront of new technology, industrialisation and innovation.

Today, explore this legacy and learn about Manchester’s interesting history by exploring:

We have two Manchester hotels; Hallmark Hotel Manchester near the airport and Hallmark Inn Manchester and since it's only three miles from the city centre, it’s the perfect base for exploring. 

We’ve even created a guide to the perfect weekend in Manchester so you can get the inside scoop on the best things to see and do in this amazing metropolis.

Glasgow 

From its humble beginnings as a small rural community on the shores of the River Clyde, Glasgow grew to become the biggest seaport in Great Britain and a city that was a pioneer in marine engineering.

The biggest city in bonnie Scotland, Glasgow boasts 19 museums and art galleries, 38 libraries, 11 theatres, 7 concert halls, over 100 parks and hosts 21 different festivals throughout the year, covering music, art, sport, film, comedy, diversity and wellbeing. And they always say it’s the people that make the place – well Glasgow’s official website is called: People Make Glasgow.

If you are staying with us at the Hallmark Hotel Glasgow, you’re perfectly placed to soak up all the local history you can by visiting places like:

You can also read our guide to the perfect weekend in Glasgow, which will give you ideas on where to eat and shop and what to see when you’re here.

As always, do ask any of our staff members for information on the local area, we know all the secrets and stories to help you make the most of local and community history month!
