this is in the main Street and not to be confused with the one outside the Shakespeare Centre. It has Shakespeare quotes on the four sides from four of his plays

I think this is a great statue in the middle of Stratford upon Avon, just a short walk from birthplace of Shakespeare. It's well designed and fun, with some interesting Shakespeare quotes on the plinth below it. It seems like a busy monument with many...More

Given to the town by a local millionaire and sculpted by an international sculptor at his studio about 7 miles from Stratford. Read the quotations round the plinth and look at the smile on the Juster's face. Never tire of seeing him.

This statue of the jester is at the end of Henley Street! We found him while walking around and had a laugh - it reminded us that Shakespeare had a sense of humour sometimes!

This monument is FUN! Reminds everyone that life can be less stressed and that Shakespeare had a sense of humour! You need to stand further away to take in the whole statue

Right at the end of Henley street, you will meet this charming character. In essence, his pose captures much of the humour contained in Shakespeare's writings - you can't miss him!
