It is the birthplace and final resting place of William Shakespeare. Home to the Royal Shakespeare Company and many a Shakespeare tribute. Stratford is a picturesque town, with a beautiful river running through it that is absolutely packed full of swans. It’s home to several novelty shops, covering such things as Peter Rabbit, Doctor Who, Shakespeare (of course), and the Wizarding World. Tours can be taken of the Royal Shakespeare Company (you can even try on some old costumes). I definitely recommend Stratford to those who love Shakespeare.
