Stratford upon Avon

A town synonymous with William Shakespeare and the gateway to the North Cotswolds.

Stratford-upon-Avon is a market town with more than 800 years of history containing not only many buildings that survive to day, and would have been familiar to Shakespeare, but also a thriving community offering a wide variety of leisure and shopping experiences.

One of the world's best-known theatre ensembles, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) performs throughout the year at its home in Stratford-upon-Avon. The company focuses on works by Shakespeare, other renaissance dramatists and contemporary writers.

A visit to Stratford would not be complete without finding out more about the English poet and playwright that makes it famous. Visit the birthplace and final resting place of William Shakespeare; take a stroll through the Bancroft gardens; a leisurely boat trip down the Avon followed by a tour of the numerous shops including Howards the Jewellers.
