The Royal Shakespeare Company performs his plays in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and adjacent Swan Theatre on the banks of the River Avon. Our professional guide will tell us all about the man himself and the landscape that inspired him and we’ll also visit the fine timber-framed town house in which he was born.   Stratford is also a great place for unusual independent shops for that special souvenir or gift.

Black Country Living Museum – £30 per person
bclm-1250x300

The Black Country Living Museum is the curious name given to the industrial area to the North and West of Birmingham, where coal mining and iron making rendered the skies “black by day and red by night”.

Since the 1970s a reconstruction of a typical industrial village has taken shape near the town of Dudley, where it’s possible to wander in and out of buildings as though you’re living in that era.   There are houses, a cinema, chapel, pub, school, general store and workshops all to be explored and our guide will tell you the best bits to discover. In recent times the award-winning television drama “Peaky blinders” has had several of its iconic scenes filmed here, including in the numerous back alleyways, the canal bridge and the blacksmith’s shop.”

Warwick Castle - including panoramic tour of the area and admission to Warwick Castle –  £35 per person

warwickOne of Europe’s largest surviving castles overlooks the River Avon at Warwick, a pretty, old-fashioned town which was once much more important than Birmingham! The castle has been both a fortress and a fine country home and its walls have many stories to tell (helped by our professional guide!).   There are tales of murder, torture, battles and plague…….but if that’s all too much then immerse yourself in the waxwork recreation of a late 19th century weekend party.
