Join us as we head to Stratford-Upon-Avon for our wonderful Shakespeare’s Stratford Tour, in the words of the Bard himself from The Taming of the Shrew “withal make known which way thou travellest: if along with us, we shall be joyful of thy company”.  Spend a wonderful day in Stratford uncovering Shakespeare’s story, visit his birthplace where the story started in 1564, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, where he fell in love and his New Place where his works became famous, and his story came to end on his death in 1616. Take a River Avon cruise, watch wildlife from eye level as we cruise past the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and Holy Trinity, Shakespeare’s burial place, travelling through the oldest and most iconic locks in the country with a light and amusing commentary along the way. Visit Coughton Court, an imposing Tudor house with beautiful gardens and a collection of Catholic treasures, home to the Throckmorton family for 600 years including the present day.
