Statue of Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon
Going from London to Stratford-upon-Avon is high on many people’s list of things to do when in England. People want to see Shakespeare’s Birthplace and attractions like Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. If you can only spare one day then it is possible to visit Stratford on a day trip from London, but it is a little awkward by bus or train. For once driving is a better option, to give you more flexibility, or you may prefer to join an organised excursion and let someone else make the arrangements.
Even better, though, is to turn your day trip into a 2-day trip, if you can, and enjoy a performance at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in the evening as part of your visit.
The Best Things to Do in Stratford-upon-Avon include seeing the Shakespeare Birthplace and the Shakespeare Centre, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, the New Place Gardens, Hall’s Croft, Shakespeare’s grave at Holy Trinity Church, the River Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and, just over 3 miles north of the town centre, Mary Arden’s Farm. For more information on these Stratford attractions visit our Best Things to Do in Stratford-upon-Avon page.
