Discover the birthplace of William Shakespeare
Stratford-upon-Avon is the cultural hub of Warwickshire, continuing to inspire people to this very day, and famous for the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). You can continue in the Bard’s footsteps with a tour of his most visited locations and a professional theatre show, or you can embed yourself into the town which is full of independent shops, with an emphasis on local food and drink. Brightly coloured buildings line the main street, but as you walk further into the town you will find the Tudor-style buildings taking shape and creating a beautiful scene.
The River Avon provides a picturesque backdrop while also offering various activities – from stand-up paddle boarding to romantic boat trips.
Stratford-upon-Avon has multiple festivals and events, from literary to musical, and is a feast for the senses all year round. On the outskirts of Stratford-upon-Avon are plenty of parks and play areas, so the little ones can always run off some steam while you get your retail therapy fix.
