Architecture, Stratford upon Avon

Architecture, Stratford upon Avon, England

This morning, our tour group departed lodgings at Cambridge in eastern England and then drove north-west to Stratford upon Avon. Here we spent time walking around this historic town, visited Shakespeare’s birthplace  in Henley Street, had a pub lunch and then walked along the bank of the River Avon to Trinity Church and Shakespeare’s burial place.  Weather remained dry.
