A vibrant, compact town boasting a rich architectural heritage, the list of things to do in Stratford-upon-Avon is as impressive as it is varied. Delightful shops and top-quality restaurants and pubs line the medieval streets, all within walking distance of the scenic River Avon, and surrounded by wonderful Warwickshire countryside.

Young and old, first-time visitor or returning holidaymaker, there is a little something for everyone in Shakespeare's hometown.

Stratford-upon-Avon is well-known for being the place of birth of William Shakespeare, generally recognized as the English language's greatest-ever writer. Having been brought up and schooled in the town, the imprint the dramatist has left on the area is significant. There are five 16th century houses in and around Stratford related to Shakespeare that you can visit, including Hall's Croft and Anne Hathaway's Cottage.

Alternatively, you may wish to take a stroll round the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, where the 'Bard of Avon' was buried in 1616. Our bus tours take you to all the major Shakespeare attractions and things to do in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Our hop on hop off tours are the ideal way to see the sights in Stratford-upon-Avon. With departures every twenty minutes in summer, you never have to wait long.
