Stratford-upon-Avon & Warwickshire


Step in Shakespeare’s footsteps

Within the undulating green hills of Warwickshire lies a wealth of English heritage. This glorious county is famed for being home to the country’s most well-renowned wordsmith, William Shakespeare. Exploring his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon, you’ll enjoy stunning Tudor architecture, Bard-themed tearooms, and the chance to see his famous words brought to life by the globally acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company. There’s more to Warwickshire than Mr Shakespeare though – it has glorious gardens and fascinating manor houses, and the lovely villages of the Cotswolds are within easy reach.

Baddesley Clinton (NT)

This impressive moated manor house is an intriguing National Trust property dating back to the 15th century. The house contains lavish Elizabethan interiors and three secret priest’s holes, which would have been built and used during the religious turmoil in the 1590s. You will also see a 19th century chapel and enjoy a relaxing lakeside walk in the beautiful grounds.
