It is literature and plays that bring most the visitors to this otherwise sleepy town near the Cotswolds. The world of William Shakespeare has been well preserved and presented as the main attraction of this pretty Middle Ages town.

The town centre remains as it was laid out in 1196 and is easily explored on foot.
The High Street is a good place to start, with its distinct display of Tudor buildings and historic sites. Highlights include Harvard House (named after a former resident who emigrated to New England and eventually establish Harvard University). The Town Hall is another outstanding historic building.

Henley street is a charming old street that houses numerous shops, The Shakespeare Birthplace, The Shakespeare Trust and Library. The half-timbered house where William Shakespeare was born in 1564 is Stratford's most cherished historic place and gives an excellent insight into his life and times. Then there is New Place, or what remains of it, which also displays period furniture and antiques.

A lovely walk through a meadow directs you to the other famous Shakespeare site, Anne Hathaway's cottage. William married her, six years his senior, at the age of 18, and the site has been well restored. If you haven't had enough of Shakespeare, there's also his mother's house in Wilcote, yet another museum.

Two magnificent churches are found in this delightful town, the guild chapel and Holy Tirinty Church, in which Shakespeare is buried. One final stop on the Shakespeare trail is the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, where you can enjoy the brilliance of his pen, deftly acted out by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The Bancroft Gardens are in front of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and alongside the River Avon. It's a lovely place to relax or admire the pleasant scenery. Several ancient hand and chain ferries cross the river.
Fun for the whole family includes the Falstaffs Experience, an unusual and rewarding attraction which takes visitors through the ages of the town's history. The kids are likely to appreciate the hundreds of fluffy friends in the Teddy museum, if literature bores them!
Capitalising on the tourism element, there are hundreds of gift shops, historic pubs, and convenient tea rooms and restaurants, as well as endless minor attractions to keep you busy all day.
