Our guide to Stratford Upon Avon Hour Hop on/Hop off Bus Tour

There is a little something for everyone in Shakespeare’s hometown. This city is filled with delightful shops and top-quality restaurants and pubs line the medieval streets, all within walking distance of the scenic River Avon, and surrounded by wonderful Warwickshire countryside.

Start the adventure at the Avon Boating as we whisk you away to Shakespeare's Birthplace at bus stop 2, where the creative genius was brought to life. Hop off at bus stop 3 to visit Market Street. Here you'll see the American Fountain, which contains a quote from the play Henry VIII.

The Royal Shakespeare Theatre at bus stop 5 is a great place to visit, filled with vibrant, creative energy. You might even want to catch a play that's on during your visit! Its location on the River Avon is just idyllic.

Further along the bus tour, at bus stop 6, we'll visit Shakespeare's Grave at the Holy Trinity Church. Shakespeare sadly died on the day that he was born, at the age of 52, but his legacy still remains very much alive.

The last window into the life of Shakespeare is the Anne Hathaway's Cottage. This cottage was the childhood home of Shakespeare's wife, where Shakespeare visited many times.
