Full description
As well as Britain's most famous playwright William Shakespeare and the world-famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford is great for a day on the River and then chilling out in the evening in one of the many chic restaurants and bars in the centre of town. Travel to all the Shakespearean Houses: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Mary Arden's House, New Place, Nash's House, and Hall's Croft. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre where the Bard's plays are performed for the majority of the year. The Holy Trinity Church where Shakespeare is buried, protected by a cursed tombstone.

Really enjoyed the bus ride around Stratford Upon Avon, plenty to see and the information that you got about Stratford and Shakespeare was really good. The timetable should be updated around Stratford as the buses are running on the hour at the moment and not every twenty minutes like the timetables say. I'm not sure why this information can't be provided online.

Easy to get to pick up point near tourist information office, never have to wait long for the next tour , get the headphones on the bus for a really good commentary about the places you will see on route , hop on and off when you want , patient smooth driver . My elderly mum loved it .

Very friendly driver took us around the sights . Very interesting commentary about what we could see Excellent good value with lots of stops. Recommended for seeing everything and for getting your bearings on locations. Care if you sit upstairs on the left ...lots of low lying branches . Our tour was due to have a live commentary , it wasn't ...but it didn't matter. The buses were due every 20minutes but they were only 1an hour so good planning had to go into visits plus it was packed when it did come (we did still get a seat together though )
