A walking tour of the places familiar to William Shakespeare


On this tour we will explore historic Stratford-upon-Avon and see places familiar to William Shakespeare, including his birthplace, his school and the church where he worshipped and is buried. We will also visit the Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre on the banks of the river Avon.

On this walking tour we go into Holy Trinity church to see William Shakespeare's grave and the Foyer of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. We do not go into any other attraction in Stratford. The birthplace and other attractions are within a short walking distance if you wish to visit them at the end of the tour.

Itinerary

During the walking tour we will see the places that Shakespeare knew, starting at his birthplace and working through his life to the place where he was buried. We will then walk along the side of the River Avon and end the tour at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The distance is 1. 3 miles / 2. 1 km.

Depending on your itinerary, we can then walk back to the starting point. The distance from the main car parks is about 1. 8 miles / 3 km.

Meeting location: We can meet at a pre-arranged place in Stratford, e.g. the RSC Theatre, or at a local hotel, rail or bus station.
I often meet customers at one of the car parks. At Windsor Street for cars or at the Coach Park for larger vehicles.

End location: The tour will end at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre or where we met unless otherwise agreed.
