Warwick Castle & Stratford-Upon-Avon
Key Tour Info
Why choose the Warwick Castle & Stratford-Upon-Avon
Arrive at the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of the famous poet and playwright, William Shakespeare.
Visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage, the marital home of Shakespeare. Stop by Holy Trinity Church which is where the famous writer was baptised and buried. Stratford-upon-Avon dates back to at least Roman times but its appearance today is that of a small Tudor market town, with mellow, half-timbered architecture and tranquil walks beside the tree-fringed Avon.
The medieval walls of Warwick Castle appear to be twice as big because of the reflection on the water. The structure of the castle was meant for military. Tour the chapel, great hall and State Rooms. Each room contains various artefacts and possessions relating to the castle’s past. In the great hall, see ‘Guy’s Porridge Pot’ which is around 500 years old. Visit Guy’s Tower, a 14th Century construction with five storeys. The windows were redesigned to allow cannons to be used during the Civil War.
