Celebrated as the town of Shakespeare’s birth, Stratford-upon-Avon is not to be missed for die-hard Shakespeare fans. Essentially a small market town, Stratford can be easily explored by foot; spend the day wandering down charming streets lined on each side with black and white timbered Tudor buildings and numerous cafes, pubs and restaurants. Stratford-upon-Avon highlights include Shakespeare’s house, Mary Arden’s farm, the childhood home of Shakespeare’s mother, and Anne Hathaway’s cottage; a quaint thatched farmhouse just outside the town provided the setting for Shakespeare’s courting of his wife-to-be. Also worth a visit is the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, which re-opened in 2010 after a three-year refurbishment. Based on Waterside, by the scenic banks of the River Avon, this Grade II listed art-deco style building is a creative combination of old and new.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
