Stratford upon Avon

Stratford upon AvonThe medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, surrounded by the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.

Stratford-upon-Avon is a charming town which is rich in history and attracts millions of visitors from all over the world.

On the banks of the River Avon, the town is perhaps best known as being the birthplace of the poet and playwright, William Shakespeare. Possibly the most famous writers in the English language, Shakespeare is known for his sonnets and plays such as ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Step back into Olde England with a stroll around the town, admiring the black and white timbered buildings. Learn more about Shakespeare’s life with a visit to his birthplace, a home that dates back to the 16th century and is now a museum.

Steeped in history and culture, there are many attractions to discover in this picturesque town, including interesting museums, inspiring art galleries and cruises along the River Avon. Enjoy some retail therapy with a trip to the Bell Court, a vibrant courtyard filled with shops, bars and restaurants.
