Last Wednesday I vlogged about hunting for a wedding venue in Stratford-upon-Avon. Today I want to focus on Stratford in photographs. It’s a very picturesque town. It basically exists on Shakespeare tourism and while yes, it does get overrun with tourists, especially in the summer, the crowds never felt too overwhelming. (I lived there with Sam in 2013) I did, however, feel the need to have a Shakespeare detox after we had moved back to London though.
One of my absolute favourite things in Stratford was the silly chain ferry that takes you from one side of the river bank to the other for 50p. I was hoping that it would have been open by the time of our trip but we were about two weeks too early.
If you’re going to Stratford, I recommend catching a show at the RSC, having a browse through Aspire (my favourite Stratford shop), eating at the One Elm, having dessert at Hooray’s British Gelato, and if you only have time for one Shakespeare property, prioritise Mary Arden’s Farm.
The Royal Shakespeare Company building. The behemoth that houses two massive theatre spaces.
Holy Trinity Church, aka where Shakespeare is buried.
I caught a tree nymph on film!
A weir on the River Avon.
Hello our old flat!
I’ll never stop loving a good dress up box. Never.
Have you ever visited Stratford?
