Famous for being the birthplace of Shakespeare, Stratford combines all the history and charm with modern amenities and shops. Town properties are ever in demand, and the popular Old Town is where that history can really be seen.
Our favourite highlights: The café culture within the town centre. The river Avon and adjacent recreational grounds. The Theatres with a wide variety of productions – it’s not all Shakespeare, you know! Sporting facilities, there really is something for everyone in and around the town.
Our favourite food: The Encore, The One Elm, The Vintner, Lambs, Carluccio’s – frankly, the choice is wide and varied. For afternoon tea or coffee - The Four Teas, Hobsons Patisserie or Vesuvio Caffe are all hugely popular.
Some good schools: Three of Stratford’s schools were in the top 100 state schools in the country, KES, Stratford Grammar and Stratford Primary School (which came 37th). Broad Street is hugely popular locally as is St Gregorys and Shottery.
Transport: Train stations means easy links across the country, as well as coach services and easy access to all the surrounding main road links.
