About Stratford-upon-Avon

Stratford Upon Avon is a beautiful historic market town in the County of Warwickshire, England. Built on the river Avon, a few miles downstream from the historic town of Warwick, Stratford is world famous as the birthplace of the legendry playwright William Shakespeare.

William Shakespeare was born, lived and is buried in Stratford and today you can visit his home and other buildings which are part of the Shakespeare Houses, a group of five houses around Stratford that are all connected with Shakespeare in some way. They include Shakespeare's Birthplace, Nash's House the home of his Granddaughter, Hall's Croft where his daughter lived, Mary Arden's House (Shakespeare's mother) and Shakespeare Countryside museum in the neighbouring village of Wilmcote, also Anne Hathaway's cottage in the nearby village of Shottery which was the family home of Shakespeare's wife.

When visiting England, Stratford is a place that should be high on your list of places to see and explore. It is a fascinating place to visit and not just for its connection with Shakespeare. Stratford has many other attractions including Holy Trinity Church, one of the most beautiful parish churches in England. You will find three great theatres in Stratford including the Royal Shakespeare Theatre where you will enjoy a performance from some of the best actors in England. You will also enjoy the beauty of this historic market town with its gorgeous flower lined river settings, boat tours along the slow flowing Avon, open top bus tours and a whole host of lovely shops, restaurants and cafe's, traditional english pubs and much more to make your stay an enjoyable one.

Highly Recommended Attraction: Stratford Town Walk & Stratford Town Ghost Walk - Award winning daily guided sightseeing walk around Stratford upon Avon every day of the year!. See the Shakespeare Town House, Grammar School, Theatres, Holy Trinity Church and much more. Entertaining and interesting. Also, spooky evening Ghost Walk to hear tales of ghosts, witches, murder and mayhem and Ghost Cruises on the River Avon - guided by a professional magician. Be afraid, very afraid..
