Stratford-upon-Avon is most well known for being William Shakespeare’s home town, but Stratford-upon-Avon could do more than you realize. Stratford is now a busy market town, full of charm and history and the right place for Shakespeare’s long-life lovers and those without change! The origin of Stratford-upon-Avon is in Saxon Medieval England culture (the name ‘street-ford’ shows that it was a fluvial crossing). It was little more than a small town on the road to London for many centuries; even now there are only 25,000 permanent inhabitants.
While visiting the family homes of Shakespeare, hunt for treasures in the lively combination of independent, shop-like, high-street shops in the lovely city of Stratford. You will find a fantastic range of tea rooms, restaurants and bars when you’re ready for refuelling including our own cafés at Hall’s Croft, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Mary Arden’s Farm.
Though Stratford has developed some industrial capacity, its partnership with Shakespeare is now mainly known. The city is extremely advantageous for the resulting tourism and cultural activities and has taken much time to preserve the buildings that survived since the time of Shakespeare. The city centre is therefore quaint and attractive that attracts many thousands of tourists every year.
Centrally situated between the world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the main shopping areas, Stratford Canal Basin is an active environment. There are some interesting and unique boat companies that are permanently moored. You can choose from a wide variety of food and refreshments, tours by boat or even dining on a cruiser in the restaurant. The Canal Basin of Stratford is surrounded by lovely river gardens which are open public areas to relax and enjoy. These areas are a magnet for the local people and visitors. Relax on the banks of the Avon River with your choice of boat charter and river cruises or get a whole new view from the water. Look for local events in the Bancroft Gardens and enjoy a wide range of music festivals, farmer markets and more.
