01 Jan Shakespeare’s Stratford upon Avon with kids
Stratford upon Avon is one of the places that many people have on their “to visit” lists. But in fact it is nothing special.
Shakespeare is the only reason why you would come to this little town in England’s heart. For us this was convenient half way stop on the way from Lancaster to Brighton with cheap Premiere Inn hotel, good pizzeria for dinner and 24 hours McDonald’s for early breakfast.
The gift shop selling all kinds of Shakespeare merchandise feels larger than the Shakespeare house itself.
Obviously if you are Shakespeare lover, this town is Mecca to you and you will not mind paying £60 for family ticket to Shakespeare birth place house and Anne Hathaway cottage. For us it was more an excursion to the way people lived in 16th century.
