English Trips to Stratford Upon Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon is the the birthplace of William Shakespeare, and is unsurprisingly steeped in culture and history. Set in the beautiful rural Warwickshire countryside, on the banks of the river Avon, it is one of the most important tourist destinations in the UK.

School trips to Stratford upon Avon are an inspired choice because it gives students the chance to visit to the famous Swan Theatre, a modern theatre space based on the design of playhouses in Elizabethan England, as well as Shakespeare's Birthplace and Holy Trinity Church, his actual burial location.
