Local Area

Stratford-upon-Avon is, of course, now synonymous with William Shakespeare, and the town’s cultural and historical offerings don’t disappoint. A stroll through the town will lead you past a number of well-preserved 16th century Tudor houses. You can also visit Shakespeare’s grave at the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, and the world famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre gives performances year round.

The River Avon winds its way through the town, where you can enjoy a River Cruise and get to know the town and the historic canals. You’ll find a host of amenities on your doorstep, from a supermarket next door to a retail park very close by, where there is an outreach doctor’s surgery (This is for Rother House Surgery), along with the pharmacy, veterinary surgery and day community hall. From the retail park you can catch a shuttle service to the town centre.
