Take in a show by the world class Royal Shakespeare Company

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire

Visit the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Swan Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon for the chance to see a play performed in the Bard’s own hometown.

What better place to see a Shakespearian play performed than in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare?

Spring’s repertoire brings ‘Othello’ and ‘The Merchant of Venice’ to the stage of the internationally acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Swan Theatre, providing the perfect excuse for a cultural holiday.

Start the day’s cultural activities with a visit to Shakespeare’s Birthplace. Spend the day exploring Shakespeare’s family houses and discover what life was like for the world’s greatest playwright.

Next head to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, where you can take you pick from a range of theatre tours, for a change to experience the RSC’s iconic venues from backstage. In the evening, have a pre-theatre dinner at the Rooftop Restaurant, enjoying panoramic views of the River Avon.
