The hotel

This iconic building is a former 16th century coaching inn and is as comfortable and elegant today as it was in its coaching heyday. It was so well loved historically that it’s where King Charles I chose to visit back in 1645, the day before the famous battle of Naseby.

Whether you are looking for a welcoming place to spend the night or would simply like to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat surrounded by friendly faces, The Three Swans is perfectly placed, right in the centre of the historic market town of Market Harborough. It has its own large car park, offers all-day dining and an in-house coffee shop, free WiFi and is pet-friendly.

A fascinating history

Proudly standing on one of England’s great old roads that links London with Manchester, The Three Swans has a deep and colourful history dating back more than 500 years, to 1517.

Surviving name changes, periods of rebuilding and refurbishment, The Three Swans has had its share of characterful landlords including the author John Fothergill, who was famous for his best-selling book An Innkeeper’s Diary.

The Three Swans once had its very own currency and it even played a key role in the rescue of a king! If these walls could speak they would no-doubt have plenty of tales to tell… read more
