Stratford-upon-Avon is internationally renowned for the Royal Shakespeare Company and as the birthplace of William Shakespeare, but that’s not all the town has to offer. There are plenty of other things to do to suit all tastes and budgets.
The wide range of attractions and activities caters for everyone – from couples and families to large groups. After visiting some of the five beautifully preserved Shakespeare houses, you can take a relaxing trip on the River Avon with Bancroft Cruisers or hire your own boat with Avon Boating. Maybe call in at the MAD museum of kinetic art, discover the exotic butterfly collection at the Stratford Butterfly Farm or enjoy a guided tour with the Stratford Town Walk.
There are plenty of things to do and see throughout the town, but if you want to explore a little further afield the award-winning Compton Verney art gallery and the Stratford Armouries are both well worth a visit.
With so many things to do in and around Stratford, you might wish to extend your visit into a short break by staying at one of the many delightful hotels or B&Bs.
