Tailor-made 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.

Reasons to Visit

Shakespeare Birthplace Museum

The half-timbered house where William Shakespeare was born in 1564 is Stratford's most cherished historic place. It is the most frequently visited of all the tourist places. Descendants of the dramatist lived there until the nineteenth century, and it has been a place of pilgrimage for over 250 years.

William Shakespeare Tour

Take a guided walk through the town and hear the special stories about Stratford's most famous son, William Shakespeare and discover the places connected with his life and his family such as the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Shakespeare Centre, Shakespeare’s birthplace, Nash’s House and Hall's Croft.

Bancroft Gardens

The Bancroft Gardens are located on the River Avon adjacent to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The wide grass lawns and gardens offer a stunning view, and the backdrop of the river compliments this perfectly. The Bancroft Gardens also display the magnificent swan fountain, Gower memorial (featuring Shakespeare and four characters from his plays) an array of statues, flowers and seating areas.

Butterfly Farm

School trips to Stratford upon Avon also offer an opportunity to visit Europe's largest butterfly farm, home to many of the world's most beautiful butterflies, in an exotic environment of tropical blossom with splashing waterfalls and fish filled pools. See the amazing lifecycle of a butterfly in action in the Caterpillar Room, as well as some of the world's largest and most camouflaged caterpillars, cocoons and giant silk moths.
