Stratford Upon Avon
Visit one of England's most beautiful parish churches at Holy Trinity to see Shakespeare's grave. Enjoy some of his great works which are performed throughout the year by the world's largest classical theatre company, the Royal Shakespeare Company, which has two Stratford theatres.
As well as its literary connections, there is much to see and do in and around Stratford. Take a boat out on the River Avon, explore the area by hop-on, hop-off sightseeing buses, discover hundreds of teddy bears in a house once owned by Henry VIII or discover some of Britain's finest historic houses and glorious gardens!
Families are in for a treat. A children's trail links the Shire horse centre, Butterfly Farm and Teddy Bear Museum with other attractions including the famous Ragdoll shop.
