Visit Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace and long-term residence of William Shakespeare. Immerse yourself in everything Shakespeare in this riverside market town. Start your days in the company of the Bard with a nose behind the scenes at his timbered birthplace museum, or at his wife's quaint thatched cottage. Once you've set the scene, you'll be ready for comedies and tragedies at the Royal Shakespeare theatres. If after this you’ve had your fill of ‘Bardolatry’, or Shakespeare worship, then there are gardens to explore, days at the races, hikes in the Warwickshire countryside, and Avon boat cruises to enjoy. Stratford-upon-Avon will teach you differences.
