    It was in 1196 that Stratford-upon-Avon was first granted the right to hold a market and recognised as a town. Its name has become synonymous with its most famous son - William Shakespeare who was born here in 1564.

    The town remains mostly unspoilt with fine examples of Elizabethan buildings in a picturesque setting. The river Avon runs through this pretty town and the marina harbours an array of brightly coloured boats providing a holiday atmosphere to what has become the most popular tourist attraction outside London.

    Shakespeare's Birthplace
    Shakespeare was born of middle class parentage and his home has been lovingly and authentically restored. It provides an insight into life during the Elizabethan period. The actual birth room has been recently refurbished revealing a less austere look.

    Ann Hathaway's House

It was occupied by the Hathaway family up until 1892. Here you will be fascinated by an Elizabethan kitchen and beautiful English country garden. There is a seat by the great fire place where Shakespeare is said to have sat whilst courting Ann.

    Hall's Croft
    In 1607, Shakespeare's daughter Susanna Authentic Gary Harris Jersey , married local physician Dr John Hall. This impressive Tudor building was named after him.
