Family friendly hotels and cultural attractions

A medieval market town that’s perhaps most famous as the birthplace of Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is also noted for its beauty and the way in which it has retained its historic charm.  

The Royal Shakespeare Company performs the famous playwright’s works in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and adjacent Swan Theatre on the banks of the River Avon, while visitors row on the river and explore the shops and tea houses that are all part of its timeless hospitality.

More than 800 years of history have shaped this beautiful corner of the world, and visitors flock year on year to explore everything from the drama to the working farms in the nearby surrounding countryside.  It’s a genteel part of the world, with Anne Hathaway’s own house featuring amongst the key attractions, river tours, and markets all populating weekend getaways and short holidays.

The beauty of the place makes it ideal for a romantic holiday, whether you care to visit the varying hot spots or simply enjoy strolling along the river.  Accommodation in picture perfect B&Bs such as White Sails on the outskirts of the town also make an excellent place to enjoy it all whilst having a little tranquil space from the centre.

Of course for those on family holidays there’s much to learn and appreciate for children of all ages – wonderfully welcoming and with seasonal events that are particularly prevalent in the school holidays including the annual literary festival, the marathon and of course, Shakespeare’s birthday – one of the most anticipated events of the year.
