The best New Year’s hotel breaks with entertainment for 2023

The best New Year’s hotel breaks with entertainment for 2023

It’s all eyes on the clock come 31 December when midnight strikes and firework extravaganzas explode into the sky, but colourful illuminations and stolen kisses needn’t be the only excitement this New Year’s Eve.

Hotels across the UK are hosting spins around the ballroom, muscle-melting spa sessions and Scottish Hogmanay celebrations should you enjoy the lull of “Auld Lang Syne” or discover a newfound appreciation for the bagpipes.

Thankfully, the only thing you’ll have to think about is which glitter-encrusted outfit you’ll be wearing to the evening’s multicourse fine dining experience and whether you’re brave enough to take part in the chilling New Year’s Day dip.

From live DJs in London to afternoons clay pigeon shooting in Scotland and brain training pub quizzes in Yorkshire, there’s no shortage of entertainment on a New Year’s staycation.

With itineraries that emphasise the most important elements of the festive season – eating, drinking and, of course, merriment – hunker down at a hospitable hotel for the best-laid plans this New Year’s Eve.
