Places to Stay before or after a Flight
How about booking a b&b? Expect a warm welcome and a hearty English breakfast before exploring the region or connecting to your flight. There are lots of attractions and places of interest in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire. Spend a day out at Peveril Castle, the Foxton Canal Museum, Lincoln Cathedral, Castle Ashby Gardens or Sherwood Forest Fun Park.
It’s best to reserve properties online if travelling during the peak season. To avoid disappointment, book a cheap room well before your flight by browsing online and finding the best place to stay. You can also benefit from secure car parking at the terminal building itself via the net. Do this well in advance and save money.
Rooms are always a premium especially when there are events going on in and around the East Midlands. Book a room at a b&b most of which have private parking areas. There’s a great choice of country fairs, beer festivals, culture and historical events in the area, something to keep everyone entertained.
Expect to find amusement funfairs for the whole family like Alton Towers, safe play areas for the children or beautiful gardens for those love colourful, pretty flowers. There’s always something to do and see before jetting off into the sunset from Donacster or Sheffield to Paris, Greece, Turkey, Egypt or Ireland, to name but a few destinations.
Wherever your travel destination, it’s best to reserve cheap hotels sooner rather than later. Some accommodation is only a short walk away from the terminal itself so rooms are generally snapped up quite quickly.
A bed and breakfast establishment gives you the freedom to go where you like, maybe to the Donnington Park Circuit or Calke Abbey. Derby and Nottingham are only a short drive away where there are also ample car parking spaces. Many rooms are spacious with many having free Wi-Fi, TV with Freeview, complimentary toiletries, a work desk, a safe and much much more.
Holiday as well as business guests are more than welcome at one of the cheaper accommodations and by bed and breakfast proprietors. Other attractions close to the East Midlands include the Derby Space Centre, Twycross Zoo, the Natural History Gallery and Wollaton Hall.
All are easy to reach and great places to visit. Many nearby towns offer affordable lodging options with friendly service and free parking on site, as well as last minute deals for travelers.

Visit nearby Donington Park Race Track and Alton Towers during your stay. Take advantage of free parking at your hotel and take a drive to visit nearby towns, or go on an extended road trip and survey the United Kingdom’s countryside.
Look for fly and stay packages and last minute deals when reserving your place to stay. B&B’s that offer breakfast, beverages, and snacks to guests are a perfect way to save money and stay comfortable while traveling. With a little research, you are sure to find a place to stay that best suits your needs and your budget.
