A weekend in Stratford upon Avon

We have visited Stratford Upon Avon twice this year already and it is swiftly becoming a favourite place of mine.

This weekend the whole family gathered together to celebrate my older siblings fortieth birthday, so seven adults and five children took to Shakespeare’s land to celebrate in style.

The fact that Britain was bathed in a heatwave certainly meant the weekend would have been wonderful anyway. However Stratford is a glorious place to travel to with a party of all ages. StratfordOur top tips

Stay central, cars are not needed in Stratford.  We stayed at the Holiday Inn which was a stones throw from the bustling waterway and Shakespeare tower.

Sunday morning saw half of our party don running shoes and tread the paths alongside the Avon.  Monument, gloriously old buildings grab your attention, distracting you from the pain of the run and you can see so much more when moving faster. P1060996
