In the care of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust are a wealth of wonderful buildings; see Shakespeare’s Birthplace, soak up the romance of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage (where he wooed his bride to be) or get hands-on at Mary Arden’s Farm, where you can experience the Tudor country life of Shakespeare’s mother. You can jump on the open-top bus to shuttle you between each property – see more here at www.shakespeare.org.uk.

Messing about on the river
There’s nothing quite like it, and there are no shortage of rowing boats, motors boats, gondolas and cruisers to get you out on the Avon! The expansive Recreation Grounds are well worth a visit alone, the perfect place for a picnic, with mini golf and a park for the kids too. The Bancroft and Theatre Gardens lie on the other side of the river (a nice round walk of about a mile will take you back to the Rec). The Theatre Gardens in particular, leading down to Holy Trinity Church where Shakespeare is buried, offer a great bit of tranquillity away from the crowds.
Framed by black and white buildings all steeped in history, it’s a great town to park up in and explore while you’re glamping in Stratford-upon-Avon – with more boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and good old pubs than you could ever need!
