Stratford-upon-Avon

I am FINALLY getting back to the blog to share the rest of our time in Stratford-upon-Avon from months ago!!  Better late than never, right?!

After our visit to Anne Hathaway's cottage, we made our way into town to visit the rest of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.  Well, not all of it, but what we could fit in a day and what was open for that time of year.  The two places we were able to see was Shakespeare's home and Hall's Croft. 

It seems quite a simple house, but for it's time in the 16th century, it was a substantial home.


Decorated beautifully in period furniture gives you a real feel of how this family lived.


A serenade.




Our last stop was Hall's Croft.  Home of Susanna Shakespeare and her husband, Dr John Hall.  A glimpse into the home of a wealthy physician.




In the garden, you can see plants and herbs used by Dr. Hall, along with this very old and beautiful tree.


Stratford-upon-Avon is a beautiful town to take a stroll and see the many old buildings and dedications to Shakespeare.


 

This is definitely a town worth seeing in England!


Even if you're, like me, not hugely knowledgeable on Shakespeare or a fan, there is much to enjoy in these homes and in town!

Have you visited Stratford-upon-Avon?

  1. I love seeing things through your lens that I know I'd never get to see, because most old historical places are not wheelchair friendly.
