Stratford-Upon-Avon: City Exploration Self-Guided Audio Tour

Step inside the world of the immortal ‘Bard of Avon’ as I take you on a journey back to 16th Century Stratford. On this walking tour, I’ll tell you all about Shakespeare's birthplace and what it was like around the time he was born. We’ll explore the places connected to Shakespeare’s life as a young boy and find out what motivated him to leave his hometown at just 21. On this tour we’ll walk the full length of Stratford’s River Avon, taking in the peace, serenity and beauty while we attempt to uncover the secrets behind his plays. We’ll pass The Royal Shakespeare Theatre on our way to see the church where Shakespeare was baptised and is buried today. There you’ll hear about the curse he planted on his own tomb! Other highlights on this tour include stories from the playwright’s school days and walking past his first and last homes. If you’re a big Shakespeare fan (which I assume you are!) this is the ideal tour for you. Please allow up to 30 minutes for our walk, and extra time if you want to go inside any of the attractions I mention along the way. The tour ends just a stone’s throw from where it starts so anything you see won’t be too far away to visit once you’re done. You’ll also learn about my favourite places to eat and drink towards the end of the tour.

Great tour with very interesting and informative commentary. Bus ride was comfortable and driver slowed/stopped at appropriate points where possible to give passengers the best chance of getting a good photo. The headphones could have done with longer leads or the ports needed to be positioned in the backs of the seats rather than at the sides but a minor inconvenience. Overall an enjoyable experience that we would repeat. A shame that Mary Arden's farm is no longer open to the general public.

What a lovely man and very knowledgeable and engaging - I love Stratford and know Shakespeare well but I still learnt lots of new things. It was a really great tour 👍🏼

We enjoy going on the open top bus. I take a young lady with learning disabilities. She loves it. We will usually go on it 9/10 times or more depending on the weather.

Peter was lovely and very informative throughout the tour. Could not have picked a better guide. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have noticed that sometimes the audio does not work but this time having a live guide added to the experience.
