Stratford-upon-Avon is well-known for being the place of birth of William Shakespeare, generally recognised as the English language’s greatest-ever writer. Having been brought up and schooled in the town, the imprint the dramatist has left on the area is significant. There are five sixteenth-century houses in and around Stratford related to Shakespeare that you can visit, including Hall’s Croft and Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Alternatively, you may wish to take a stroll round the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, where the ‘Bard of Avon’ was buried in 1616.
