Stratford-Upon-Avon is the birthplace of William Shakespeare and the town has been largely preserved as a result of this historical connection. The result is the epitome of Olde England, a very pretty Cotswolds town which can be explored on foot with ease.
As the birthplace of William Shakespeare, this charming market town attracts millions of visitors each year who seek to experience the beauty and wonder that inspired the world's most famous playwright.
A trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon would be incomplete without visiting the well-preserved 16th-century half-timbered house, Shakespeare's Birthplace. Here, visitors can take a step back in time and walk the very halls that nurtured the young playwright's imagination. For a touch of drama, the Royal Shakespeare Company's (RSC) theaters are a must-see. Hosting world-class performances and offering backstage tours, the RSC ensures that Shakespeare's legacy remains very much alive.
In addition to its literary attractions, Stratford-Upon-Avon boasts beautiful scenic walks along the River Avon. The tranquil waters meander through the town, providing a peaceful backdrop for a leisurely stroll or a delightful riverboat cruise. The town's rich history is evident in its architecture, with its splendid mix of Tudor and Georgian buildings.
Stratford-Upon-Avon offers an experience for the whole family, with interactive museums, such as the MAD Museum and the Stratford Butterfly Farm, ensuring there is something for everyone. This idyllic town is a must-visit destination for anyone seeking a glimpse into the life and times of William Shakespeare and the opportunity to revel in the rich cultural tapestry that has shaped England's literary landscape.
Teams will explore the delightful streets of Stratford, visit The Royal Shakespeare theatre, cross the picturesque River Avon and visit one of the many ancient pubs. There are many excellent hotels around the town and we can recommend suitable venues for your stay.
We usually include costumed characters in our Treasure Hunts but Stratford-Upon-Avon is one location where there are plenty of these working in the town. The two fellows in the picture work at the excellent Tudor World museum and it's well worth building a visit into your Stratford-Upon-Avon Treasure Hunt.
