Mini Day Trip to Stratford-upon-Avon

So anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely LOVE anything Shakespeare so when my boyfriend drove me all the way down to Stratford-upon-Avon yesterday for a mini day trip I was the happiest little birdy that ever lived 😀

Stratford Upon Avon RiversideAnd as if it wasn’t amazing enough that I got to visit Shakespeare’s birthplace the sun came out to see us too! When I have been down before it has been super busy and I have been down for a specific purpose so it was lovely just to ramble about the town and see the Marina (so pretty!) and have a laugh at the swan’s landing formation 😛 (such strange sounds!) Also, Shakespeare fans VISIT THIS PLACE! By the Marina is a collection of statues depicting various characters from Shakespeare’s plays and of course the great man himself.

We had a wander past all of the theatres and had a quick peek in to the RSC theatre where we found the BEST BOOK SHOP EVER!!! 😀 The RSC  shop had every type of shakespeare related book you could imagine (even a Manga version) and so much shakespeare merchandise I just had to get one of the cute mini editions of plays…

Another one to add to my collection! 😀 I may have to start building some more shelves…

An absolutely lovely day and all washed down with some lovely grub from the Pen & Parchment! I feel like such a lucky girly! 🙂 

For anyone looking at visiting the area and wanting to pre-plan, here is a map of the area listing all of the big places you need to see including Shakespeare’s birthplace and grave. And here is a PDF of Stratford’s visitor guide 🙂
