Shakespeare’s Stratford In-2-Days
Much ado about the bard
Of course two days isn’t enough time to see all that Stratford-upon-Avon has to offer, but it’s enough to give you great insights into the life and times of Shakespeare from his birthplace to his schoolroom, the site of his house and garden at New Place to his grave. Eat and drink in a pub that was standing before he was born, visit his grandparents’ place, his daughter’s house and and his wife’s parental home. It’s all in the family here.
9am: Visit Shakespeare’s Birthplace on Henley Street, a pedestrian precinct with buskers and lined with small shops and cafes. The actual Birthplace complex has video presentations and artefacts including Shakespeare’s First Folio. Then wander through the rooms to appreciate the life and times of Shakespeare’s day.
