Stratford Upon Avon and Warwick
A million people a year come to Stratford Upon Avon to see the home of England’s most famous writer. Yet Shakespeare remains a mysterious figure. Everything we do know about the Bard is here - his birthplace, the church where he was baptised and buried, his school, his house and the theatres that carry his name and legacy.
Just 15 minutes from Stratford, and you can step further back in time to explore medieval England at world famous Warwick Castle. Once a prison for a King and the capital of England, Warwick Castle brings history to life.
