"Shakespeare's County" Top 5 Page for this destination Warwickshire by Bwana_Brown

Warwickshire Travel Guide: 878 reviews and 2,231 photos

Our time in Warwickshire was relatively brief and this marked the northernmost extent of our travels on this particular trip. After spending the night in nearby Banbury, Oxfordshire, my wife wanted to make the short drive to Stratford-upon-Avon to see the famous cottage where Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway, had been raised. It was a cool but sunny Monday morning that worked out quite well for a tour around the grounds of this very popular tourist attraction. By just after lunch time, we were finished with Warwickshire and were headed south into the yellow stone towns of Gloucestershire, the next leg of our journey (or check my Surrey page for a description of how the trip began).

    Classic UK stop, Glenn but you must have had a pub lunch somewhere along the trip here. ;)

    Wonderful architecture of Shakespeare's house. I need a talented architect to copy the house in Poland for me :-)

    I think the entrance fee this year was even higher. Lovely picture of the cottage. The views of the area are great I agree, it was interesting to see a winter scene.

    Great stuff for a short visit. It's a shame you didn't get to spend more time in my home county. There's a lot more to it than Shakespeare :).

    Excellent picture of Anne Hathaway's Cottage but the fee for the visits seems high !
