If you want to take advantage of the January sales, then why not base yourself at one of Hand Picked Hotels’ venues to ensure you get the best bargains.

While some bargains can be found online before Christmas, the real savings are made in the traditional Boxing Day and January sales. In fact, shopping in the first month of the year is a major tradition here in the UK, with around two thirds of us hitting the high street.

For the ultimate in January sales shopping, London is always one of the best cities to find bargains. So why not book a night away or make a weekend of it, and take you and a friend or loved one to Hendon Hall Hotel. Situated near to the Northern tube line, Hendon Hall offers an irresistible calm in a quiet residential area of London. 

Alternatively why not head to Britain’s third largest indoor shopping centre, Bluewater, boasting 300 stores, 60 restaurants, and 13 cinema screens. Nestled in rural Kent, but only around a 30 minute drive away; our classic British country house that is Chilston Park Hotel is the perfect base from which to enjoy a spot of retail therapy. 

Another location that’s good for grabbing the best bargains and updating your wardrobe is Birmingham with a mix of shopping centres, historic markets and the world-famous Jewellery Quarter. The 800-year-old New Hall Hotel is just over eight miles from city centre, and also boasts a spa so you can treat yourself after a long day out. 

You will find plentiful shopping opportunities in Edinburgh, too. And January is also when Scotland has its Hogmanay celebrations so there’s never been a better time to visit the jewel in Scotland’s crown. Located 20 miles from the city centre, Norton House Hotel is a welcome retreat of calm away from jostling bargain hunters.
