Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Savor great views and fascinating history on full-route tour (approximately one hour) of Stratford-Upon-Avon’s main sites. Enjoy the flexibility of choosing your own itinerary with the structure of strategically placed stops, frequent pickup (every 15-20 minutes) and lively commentary.

    With your 24-hour pass (valid from first use), hop on and off at any of the route’s 14 locations. See itinerary below for all stops. Take your time journeying through Shakespeare’s England with a trip to his birthplace, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre that still performs Bard’s play, and the Holy Trinity Church where the playwright was baptized and currently resides under a cursed tombstone. Take a short jaunt out of town to lovely Warwickshire to visit the house of Shakespeare’s mother, Mary Arden.

    To end you tour, simply hop off at any of the designated stops on the route.

    We purchased a 48 hour pass and it was great fun. Pick up directly outside our hotel. Really informative and full of stories on popular sayings. You would be crazy to miss this!

    We visited Stratford over the bank holiday weekend. We decided the best way to see the town was the tour. It was very easy to catch, good value and make sure you get the headphones and sit on the top deck for the best experience....More
