Is a strange name for a town. But when you realised who lived there. You probably will understand why. This is the birthplace of William Shakespeare. You can spend a day there looking at historical buildings. But you should join a walking tour to have a better understanding of the place. Here is a link to the map of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Getting there

You can take a train or a bus to Stratford-upon-Avon. It takes about 2 hours. If you want to try to take a bus using National Express, you can check it out here. You will need to find your way to the Victoria Coach Station. Go early so that you can have more time there.

Things to do

If you are not joining any tour group before reaching Stratford-upon-Avon, you should head down first to the Visitor Center. Get a map and find out more details there. You can also sign up for a 2 hr walking tour with a guide that looks like Shakespeare himself!

The main attraction is seeing Shakespeare ‘himself’. He will walk you through many of the buildings that are still here to date. The only one that is missing is his own residence. Rumour has it that when he died it was sold to someone. But this guy was too annoyed by many visitors who wanted to see Sharespare’s residence, he decided to demolish it!
