The town’s tourist website provides some great information and routes to help you make the most of your visit.
Using their guides, I managed to see:
Shakespeare’s birthplace: his childhood home from 23 April 1564 and where he spent the first few years with his wife, Anne Hathaway
Holy Trinity Church (aka Shakespeare’s Church) - the medieval church where Shakespeare is buried
The Royal Shakespeare Company - one of the most renowned acting companies in the world
Lots of quaint streets and shops with half-timbered buildings.
The River Avon
Anne Hathaway’s Cottage - his wife’s thatched home in nearby Shottery village
I stopped for a steak in a timbered pub…
