Tourist Information On Stratford Upon Avon

Generally finding an ideal place to visit for a short holiday can be very difficult if you do not know what is out there. Stratford Upon Avon is well known for being the birthplace of William Shakespeare, filled with culture and literalism that will numb your senses with pleasure. But simply knowing this is not enough, there are quite a number of beautiful treats that await you if you consider this as one of your holiday destinations.

This country is set in the backdrop of a rural countryside of Warwickshire and on the banks of the river Avon, hence the name Stratford Upon Avon. So romantic is this town that it has become ideal for weddings, reunions as well as the peculiar and absurd celebration of the Shakespearean heritage which is filled with a literary tide that could even sweep Hercules off his feet with a single breath.

There are a number of attractions you can behold the moment you step into its streets. To start with there is Falstaff Experience. Falstaff is a museum that takes you through the history of the town, Shakespeares works as well as the greater British heritage as it has been passed down through the ages. It offers an educational experience like no other, and it is fun at the same time.

The Holy Trinity Church grounds are the resting places for both William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway. As unbelievable as it might seem this is very true and if you are an ardent reader of Shakespeares works this will provide a rich introspection into the life of the literary man himself. The courtyard is splendid with an outdoor experience that is fitting to be a detachment that fell from Heaven.

The river Avon is perhaps one of the best treats of all. During the brief summer months this river and its waterside is livened up in a frenzy of activity. Races are held during this time during which canoes and boats of different shapes and sizes speed down its trail. In addition to this you can also enjoy a leisurely ride down the river in speed boats, canoes, crafts and dinner cruises.

After you are done exploring the many delights of this small town you can then relax to a meal in one of many eating out places. There are quite a number of restaurants, coffee shops and pubs to satisfy your building urge to eat. There is the Riverside Hotel set just close to the river Avon, The College Arms, Bernadettes that specializes in fish. Bensons Restaurant and The Bantam are coffee shops and The Golden Cross is a pub of great fascination.

Accommodation is not an issue at all. We have a beautiful range of Stratford upon Avon Cottages for you to enjoy your break away.

Transport links are well developed with rail, road and air transport servicing this incredible town. I mean, what more can you ask for from such a small town.
