Stratford Upon Avon
Stratford is the birthplace of William Shakespeare who was born here in 1564. There are 5 houses linked to Shakespeare and his family and each offers a unique experience of the Stratford world in which the famous dramatist was born, worked and was buried. Stratford is also home to the Royal Shakespeare Company and its ‘Courtyard Theatre’ in which you can take a backstage tour. Of course, as well as all things Shakespeare, the 800 year old scenic market town has a number of other attractions so if you are more interested in music, sport, movies or dining out there is plenty to keep you busy.
