Things to do in  Stratford-upon-Avon

Welcome to Stratford-upon-Avon

Best known as Shakespeare’s birthplace, the pretty medieval market town of Stratford-upon-Avon—lined with characteristic Tudor half-timbered buildings—has become a bustling pilgrimage point for devotees of the Bard. Visiting Shakespeare’s Birthplace, where the writer lived in his youth, is perhaps the top thing to do in Stratford-upon-Avon, although assorted landmarks around town are also important landmarks of his life, from the Holy Trinity Church (where he’s buried) to Anne Hathaway’s Cottage (his wife’s former home). Meanwhile, at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Royal Shakespeare Company brings his masterworks to life.
