Marriott Leamington Spa

I will be staying in this hotel while my husbad is on a business trip. Could anyone tell me how close Warwick Castle and Stratford are?

It will only take you about five to ten minutes to get to Warwick by car from the Marriott, depending on traffic of course. Stratford will take about twenty minutes or so.

Just avoid the morning and evening rush hour as Europa Way is normally at a standstill at the beginning and end of the working day.

Traffic is usually OK at weekends. It's the nearby business parks which cause all the hold-ups during the week. However, if you are heading for Stratford and the weather is really nice I would recommend that you go early to late morning. If you leave it until lunch time or later, you will encounter hold-ups on all routes into the town centre - seems like everyone wants to go there when the sun is shining!

Traffic into Warwick is OK unless it is a Bank Holiday weekend.

You're welcome. If I can help in any other way, please let me know.

By the way, there is a message from Poppa on the London forum which I presume is for you - seems that they are all getting worried that you have not replied.

Trish do you think I should do Warick Castle on the Saturday or the Sunday? The other day I want to spend in Stratford.

I would be inclined to visit the castle on Saturday, and leave Stratford until Sunday. There's not much going on in Warwick on Sundays, so if you want to see the town as well as the castle, Saturday would be better.

I always find Stratford too full of shoppers on Saturdays, so Sunday should be a bit quieter, although nearly all the shops are open then too.
