We’re heading to the historic gem of the West Midlands, host to a diverse mix of shops and activities for all.
Every visit to Stratford would not be complete without finding out more about the English poet and playwright that makes it famous. Shakespeare’s birthplace allows you to visit the house where the world’s most famous playwright was born and grew up to discover more about his early years. Other must-see Shakespeare locations include Hall’s Croft (home to William’s daughter), Nash’s House and New Place (the last chapter in his life), Anne Hathaway’s cottage (a romantic setting) and Mary Arden’s Farm (the childhood home of Shakespeare’s mother).
You’ll be spoilt for choice by Stratford-upon-Avon’s diverse array of shops. Whether you’re treating yourself to something new or buying a gift for someone special,
you can be sure to find it here. The department stores offer a wide range of choice under one roof, whilst big-name clothing and shoe, health and beauty, toys and stationery, and home stores sit alongside a fabulous selection of small independent shops, unique to Stratford-upon-Avon. It’s a shopper’s paradise! The town centre is compact and easily walkable for all.
