Staying in pubs, inns and B&Bs in the UK

Everyone loves a traditional British pub, but did you know you can stay in one, too? With pubs, inns and B&Bs all over the country - from scenic country spots to buzzing city centre locations - expect a warm and cosy welcome.

What is an inn?

In the past, travellers from across the UK would stop off at a coaching inn to eat and rest on long journeys - most inns in Britain date back hundreds of years to when everyone travelled by horse and stagecoach. That means many boast original architecture and unique stories.

Why choose to stay in an inn or a pub?

You can have a drink, eat and sleep all under one roof, which is a great way to meet the locals! You’ll experience the true British pub and inn lifestyle, and you’re sure to pick up some stories to share with your friends and family back home. The Stay in a Pub website helps you find pubs with accommodation around the UK.

Staying in B&Bs

From deluxe city centre properties to others in remote countryside and coastal villages, you’ll find Bed and Breakfast accommodation across Britain. This involves accommodation in inns, hotels or private properties, and includes a room for the night and breakfast the following morning. It’s a great way to meet local people and there are plenty of low-cost options to pick from, as well as an increasing number of luxury and boutique offerings.
