Going from London to Stratford-upon-Avon by bus isn’t ideal. Although the bus fares are fairly cheap, there are only a few buses a day, and the journey time is generally over three hours. At the time of writing the first bus of the day leaves London’s Victoria Coach Station at 8am, and gets into Stratford at 11.15am. The last coach back to London from Stratford currently leaves at 6.20pm, giving you only seven hours to see the town. This isn’t a great deal of time, but if you feel it will be enough for you and you are on a budget, you can get to and from Stratford-upon-Avon as a day trip for under £20 return. Alternatively, you could turn it into a 2-day trip and go to see a performance at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in the evening.
Buses from London arrive at the Riverside Bus Station on Bridgeway, in the very centre of the town.
