At the end of July we arrived in Stratford-upon-Avon to see some plays, visit with friends that we knew in South Africa and just generally be tourists. An added bonus was that Sarah, our daughter was able to join us for the weekend.
We walked all over town, along the river and down some interesting side streets. Great restaurants, all catering to the early show time.
The plays were superb productions. All's Well That Ends Well, Titus Adronicus (a little too graphic for me but gripping nonetheless) and It's a Mad World. We stayed at the Arden hotel across the street which served us well as it was pouring one night as we left the play.
