Stratford-upon-Avon tours from London

A wide range of tours from London daily

Shakespeare's Birthplace Stratford Upon Avon

Shakespeare's Birthplace Museum Stratford-upon-Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon is well over 2 hours by tour bus from London. People who go to Stratford, although a very nice small town in its own right, go for its Shakespeare connections.


Shakespeare's Stratford

Shakespeare himself was born and died in Stratford and there are many properties in and around the town that trace aspects of his life, mostly homes where either he or his close relations lived.


There is the church where he is buried, a birthplace museum and a major theatre company that performs his work all year round. Shakespeare properties are also dotted in and around the town of Stratford Upon Avon.

London coach tours to Stratford

You would be doing well to see all of this in one day, so a day tour from London that typically spends no more than 90 minutes in the town is perhaps not the best fit for those with a keen interest in Shakespeare.


The notable exception is a single small group tour that spends all day in Stratford Upon Avon, the perfect fit for those who want a full exploration of all things Shakespeare.

Stratford with Warwick

For others, most tours have Stratford Upon Avon as one just stop in a day visiting nearby Warwick and/or the nearby scenic Cotswolds region and/or Oxford the famous university city passed on the road between London and Stratford.
