Stratford Upon Avon

This charming and picturesque Cotswolds town is most famous as the birthplace of legendary poet and playwright, William Shakespeare. On breaks to Stratford-Upon-Avon you can actually visit the house in which he was born and raised and then discover the beautiful cottage that belonged to his wife, Anne Hathaway. Stratford-Upon-Avon has been a market town for over 800 years and is still a wonderful place to pick up some locally made delicacies. As a gateway to the scenic Cotswolds, breaks to Stratford-Upon-Avon also offer plenty of outdoor adventures, either scenic walks or fun on the water at one of the region’s lakes and reservoirs.
