Things to do in Stratford-upon-Avon
Get your Stratford itinerary sorted with a little help from the local wildlife, theatre and water.
Catch a show at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre - We wouldn’t normally advise adding some drama to your staycation but when it’s provided by the Royal Shakespeare Company, we’d strongly suggest you do. Book tickets for Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Midsummer Night’s Dream and more with evening and afternoon performances.
Take a punt on the River Avon - Time your trip between March and October for the chance to explore the town on the water. Punters can take a short stroll from the farmer’s market to hire pedal boats, canoes, gondolas and motorboats. Think weeping willows, perfect lawns and swans floating by as you take it all in.
Visit Butterfly Farm - Get closer to the rainforest in the heart of the West Midlands. Butterfly Farm is one of the market town’s most popular family attractions, and recreates conditions in Belize to host some of the most unique butterfly species in the world. For wildlife closer to home, there’s always the option to cool off in the wildflower garden between June and September.
