  • Stratford-upon-Avon

    Arguably the greatest writer in the English language was William Shakespeare, who was born in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564. Now a bustling city of over 25,000 people that sees over two million visitors a year, the Stratford of Shakespeare's day was little more than a village. 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. Visit Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Holy Trinity Church, Stratford Butterfly Farm, Hall's Croft, Tudor World, Shakespeare's Funerary, Shakespeare`s Schoolroom and Guildhall, Shakespeare's New Place, Nash`s House, Charlecote Park, Mary Arden's Farm, The Falstaff's Experience, Gower Memorial, and so much more!

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.
