Visit Stratford-Upon-Avon

Stratford-Upon-Avon Wonderful room. Have been here before and would definitely come here again. Fabulous hotel in a beautiful location. Stratford-Upon-Avon Mr A Towell, Mid Glamorgan

There's plenty to see and do

For centuries, Stratford-Upon-Avon has been a place of culture and inspiration, where beamed historic houses line quaint cobbled streets and where you’ll walk in the footsteps of famous playwright William Shakespeare. Shakespeare’s legacy is everywhere, found in the town’s museums and in the church graveyard where he’s buried alongside his wife and descendants. His houses, and the homes of other members of his family, are attractions open to the public, and the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre to this day hosts world-class performances of his works.

Yet, whilst Shakespeare is so intrinsically linked with the town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, he’s not all that the town has to offer. In amongst historic houses and theatres you’ll find stunning floral gardens, parks and green spaces set on the River Avon’s banks. Walkers will find that the town’s surroundings will keep them occupied for days, though it’s also possible to enjoy a view from the air on a scenic pleasure flight.

Pass monuments, National Trust properties and a whole host of shops and pubs on board a gondola. You won’t find a better activity for a romantic day out than a private boat ride followed by a meal in one of Stratford’s exceptional restaurants. At Charlecote Park, near the Charlecote Pheasant Hotel, you can enjoy a picnic amidst a herd of fallow deer. At the Stratford Butterfly Farm you’ll see exotic butterflies and tropical plants creating a rainbow-coloured environment that you’ll want to capture on camera.

On a summer Sunday, treat that special someone to a trip aboard the Shakespeare Express. It’s a lovely steam train that rushes through the countryside between Stratford-Upon-Avon and Birmingham, with food served on-board for passengers. Whether you’re served a full English breakfast, a traditional afternoon tea or a three-course dinner you’ll also have the option of a range of accompanying drinks including wines, beers and soft drinks for the duration of the journey. The Shakespeare Express offers a trip that takes an hour each way, from Stratford-Upon-Avon station.

However you choose to spend your time, you’ll experience history and will be treated to the delights of the Warwickshire countryside with plenty to see and do.
