Discover the birthplace of William Shakespeare

Famous as the birthplace of the Bard, Stratford-upon-Avon is a feast for all the senses. As you would expect William Shakespeare’s legacy is strongly in evidence here. Whether you are a Shakespeare aficionado or not, there is something rather special about seeing a performance at the world-class Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). This is an exceptional theatre where the great and good of the acting world flock to tread the boards. Visit the family home of Anne Hathaway, where Shakespeare fell in love and take guided tours of his birthplace.

This is much more however to this Tudor town than William Shakespeare. There are fabulous art galleries, museums, and an abundance of independent places to shop. Stratford-upon-Avon also plays host to multiple festivals and events throughout the year. These range from the world-famous literary festival and musical events to a celebration of Shakespeare’s birthday and a much-loved Victorian Christmas market. The River Avon runs through the heart of town, providing a very pretty backdrop and a wealth of water-based activities. These range from river cruises and boating to stand-up paddleboarding and during the summer months, the riverbanks throng with visitors enjoying the water.

Stratford-upon-Avon is also a town that enjoys a plethora of superb eating spots. From gorgeous tearooms and cafes to cosy bistros and Michelin-star dining, there is something to suit every budget. You’ll also find an abundance of ancient pubs filled with character and charm. These include The Garrick, reputedly the oldest pub in town at more than 600 years old. Alternatively, you could call into the Dirty Duck. Located just across the road from the RSC, you never know who you might end up rubbing shoulders with.

Stratford-upon-Avon has excellent transport links and is easily accessible, making it a fabulous location for a countryside escape.
