"Don't be a tourist, be a traveller"


Famous for its unique heritage and culture, world class theatre, glorious gardens, fun family activities, boutique shopping and wide variety of restaurants, old fashioned tea rooms and traditional English pubs, Shakespeare's County has an awful lot to offer whether you're a local or you're just passing through.  But delve a little deeper and you might be surprised by what else you find.

Culture lovers will discover historical wonders around every corner, with magnificent castles and a region teeming with literary heritage. Its home to William Shakespeare whose memory is revived by exploring Stratford upon Avon, the Shakespeare Houses and by experiencing an unforgettable performance by the RSC.  But that’s just the beginning. You can visit England’s largest indoor Butterfly Farm; see the mechanical marvels of the MAD Museum or seek the magic in Magic Alley's Lost Years Of William Shakespeare attraction.

But wander a little further off the beaten track and unveil picturesque towns and villages - each with their very own story to tell including Alcester, brimming with historic buildings; mediaeval Henley in Arden; the elegant Georgian buildings of Shipston on Stour; and not forgetting the historical attractions, secret gardens and inspiring collection of shops and restaurants that make up Warwick. 

The Not Just Shakespeare Tourist Information Service is staffed by people who live and work in Stratford, and we know all the secrets! We’ll do our best to encourage you to delve a little deeper and stay a little longer - after all, it's Not Just Shakespeare that we have to be proud of!
