Description

Today your journey is straight to William Shakespeare 's historic Stratford-upon-Avon. Stratford-upon-Avon is immortalized by William Shakespeare and is like a shrine to him. Your journey from London will only take about 90 minutes. Stratford-upon-Avon is the city that gave birth and burial to William Shakespeare and millions of people visit the city every year to celebrate his life and work. Upon arrival, you will start with Shakespeare's birthplace and Stratford visitor centre exhibition, the top attraction for Stratford day visitors. This semi-woody Henley Street building with a large rear floor was probably acquired on two levels in 1556 and 1575 by Shakespeare's father John. It is decorated with many historical manuscripts and books in antique style. There is sometimes a performance in the outdoor celebration garden. Your next stop is New Place. From 1597 to his death in 1616, New Place was Shakespeare's home. Shakespeare retired to it after completing his work. The New House survived after Shakespeare's death until its demolition in 1759. Picturesque garden space is where Shakespeare's original home was next door. The amazing Elizabethan Knot garden, created between 1919- 1920, has been based on images from Shakespeare's garden books and contains, to the extent possible, plants which Shakespeare had known. Time to proceed to Hall’s Croft. The eldest daughter of Shakespeare, Susanna, was living with her husband, Dr. Hall, in the Croft Hall. There is an exhibition about Dr Hall and his time's medicine to explore the house and gardens. In the building, there are excellent furnishings and paintings from the sixteenth and 17th centuries. You will then proceed to Holy Trinity Church, the oldest remaining building of Stratford, which was built in 1210 on the site of a Saxon monastery. The Holy Trinity Church is where both William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway are buried. The church and grounds have free access but the Shakespeare tomb, which is buried five meters underneath the church, is to be visited. On the wall near the grave is a Shakespeare monument, including a dramatist 's bust. It was produced shortly after his death and is regarded as Shakespeare's most authentic depiction.

With the Royal Shakespeare Company, Anne Hathaway's Cottage, Mary Arden's House this is a total Shakespeare's story. All those marvels are just a couple of hours away from London and simply await your exploration.
