Stratford-upon-Avon

Hello everybody!

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon. It’s a small town on the way from Birmingham to London away from a highway. The best car park is behind a huge shopping centre near Avon, beacuse it’s very big and toilets are inside, so it’s very good place to park.

First what you will see is a statue (column) dedicated to Shakespeare and his dramas. It’s on the waterfront of Avon and it’s enclosed by huge amount of flowers. Then you’ll probably go to a town and there is it – Toni&Guy. Just kidding, I mean Shakespeare’s house.

First when you pay your entry you will watch a short movie about his life. Next is a parade of his house and after that you will enter to not very big, but beautiful garden. In the middle of that garden are actors usually playing dramas, when i was there it was Hamlet. On the other side of the garden is a souvenir shop, which is also an exit from that area.

When you have time, visit Holy Trinity church, where was Shakespeare buried or visit a park, where you walk on the pavement upon the Avon, where are swans swimming right below your legs. You can also feed them, they would be very pleased.

On the square of Stratford-upon-Avon isn’t only Toni&Guy, but a lot of more interesting stores, too. E.g. there are 2 christmas shops opened everyday or patisseries, where you can buy some typical food and cakes. I recommend that cakes, mostly the caramel one, they are very tasty.
