Stratford-upon-Avon

The birthplace in 1564 of William Shakespeare – widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English Language – has been a market town for over 800 years and still contains buildings which would have been familiar to the playwright and poet.

Shakespeare’s Birthplace, the house in which he grew up and in which he spent the first five years of married life, has been welcoming visitors for over 250 years.

Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, a mile outside the town, is actually a 600-year-old thatched farmhouse surrounded by nine acres of gardens, orchards and woodland.

Warwick Castle

On a site dating back to the time of William the Conqueror in the 1060s, Warwick Castle has survived attack, siege and damage by fire. Throughout its changing fortunes, it remained under the stewardship of the Earls of Warwick and, later, the aristocratic Greville family as a private home until 1978.

Its towers, ramparts and dungeon can all be explored, but its fortified walls belie a grand interior with a Great Hall and magnificent State Rooms.

The private apartments contain wax figures representing those attending a lavish weekend house party, hosted by the Countess of Warwick in 1898, at which the guest of honour was the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII. The castle grounds contain a giant catapult or “trebuchet”, the largest working siege machine in the world.
