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. Don't miss the Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare was baptized and is buried. Other attractions include a butterfly farm, a witchcraft exhibition, and Bancroft Gardens, a public park where the Royal Shakespeare Theatre is located.
