Stratford-Upon-Avon Hotels

A heady mix of culture and history, the picturesque town of Stratford-Upon-Avon is perhaps best known for its close association with Shakespeare and his evocative theatrical works. In addition to a number of excellent theatres that promise to transport you to into the magical world of the Tempest or tear jerking tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, you'll find perfectly preserved Tudor houses and all manner of shops, cafés, restaurants and bars. You can also visit Shakespeare's birthplace.

Things to see

A great way to start any visit to Stratford-Upon-Avon is with a gentle, meandering stroll through the historic streets. Here you'll find a unique mix of curiosity shops, boutique cafés (for a refreshing tea break), and modern retail chains. You won't want to miss Shakespeare's place of birth in Henley Street, containing a plethora of 16th century items and décor. Evenings can be spent whiling away the hours in one of the many local pubs, before catching a show at the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre - its oval design mimicking the theatres of Shakespeare's time. Kids and adults alike will also enjoy the nearby Stratford Butterfly Farm, were you can view the delicate, colourful insects as they flutter around the large glistening greenhouses that provide a natural habitat.
