The main attractions within the town include the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and two contemporary buildings, Hall`s Croft (the one-time home of Shakespeare's daughter, Susannah) and New Place, the latter built on the site of an earlier house where the playwright died in 1616.

In the old city, the Rows is a shopping district distinguished by 2-level covered arcades and Tudor-style half-timber buildings. A Roman amphitheatre, with ongoing excavations, lies just outside the old city's walls. Numerous pubs and wine bars populate the city, some of which are medieval.

England

American travelers cannot get enough of England, and to this day it consistently ranks in the three most popular European countries in terms of visitors per year. Nearly everyone visits London, one of the world`s most important cities and the epicenter of what was once a vast world empire, but England should definitely be explored in-depth, from the charm of the Cotswolds to the seaside resorts on the English Channel and the Irish Sea to the beautiful landscapes of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Westcountry. England is a country where the present day and over a millennia of history routinely intersect.
