River Avon and Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon

River Avon and Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon, England

This evening, I am focusing on the popular visitor town of Stratford-upon-Avon which is synonymous with England’s greatest playwright for it was here that William Shakespeare was both born and buried.

Stratford is very receptive to visitors who can visit the playwrights birthplace, stroll through the town  and along the sleepy River Avon to Holy Trinity Church, visit the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Shakespeare’s old school.  

In the vicinity of Stratford can be found Palmer’s Farm and Mary Arden’s House, both at Wilmcote and Ann Hathaway’s Cottage at Shottery.
