Renting a place in Stratford  (11 Answers)

Hello everybody. I live in Washington D.C and would like to buy a place in Stratford to spend summers there. In the meantime I thought the best idea would be renting a flat see if I actually like the town that much: -) .What would you suggest? Is it a safe place to live in? I know it is very quaint and pretty when one is a tourist :-). Thank you.

Bus service  (8 Answers)

We have tickets to Romeo and Juliet at 8 PM on Saturday, October 5, 2013.

I believe the last train leaves before the play ends. Are there buses back to London after the play is done (sounds like between 10;30 - 11:30 PM)? If not, can one hire a driver to return to London at that time?
Thank you

Stratford Upon Avon - Anne Wood - Rosie and Jim; Ragdoll Productions; Teddy Bears  (5 Answers)

Hi - off to Stratford Upon Avon in a couple of days.
OK - well we all know that it is very famous for William Shakespeare.
However i am very interested in what else there is to see?
Many people are very negative about this - and many say there is little else to see - i do not believe this - there has to be some things other than Shakespeare.
Now in my FootPrint Britain book it mentions about the Teddy Bear Museum - this looks no longer here - which is a damn shame.
Then I was following in the footsteps of Anne Wood - famous for Telletubies - but also Rosie and Jim - so i would like to go to the Canal where it was flimed - i think Rosie and Jim was great. On google maps you can go to the former home of The Ragdoll Shop and you go to streetview you will see Rosie and Jim looking out of the top window.
So would like to follow in footsteps of Anne Wood - and any other notable people that have had an effect on the town.
Then there may be other things to see in Stratford Upon Avon.

What to do in the Stratford area  (31 Answers)

We are headed to Stratford next weekend and have been several times before so we are trying to find things to do in the surrounding area. We were in the Cotswolds in April so not sure we want to go back - unless someone can recommend them in November?

Bournville has been suggested. We would probably give Cadbury World a miss (being a big Green & Black's fan I couldn't really show my face there!) but would the town itself be worth a visit? What about Warwick? The castle is waaaay too expensive to visit but what about the town?

I guess what I am trying to find is someplace that would be a nice day trip from Stratford where we can have a dander about and take photos and might have some lovely autumn colours. Any ideas?

What are some great Cotswold villages to visit?  (12 Answers)

I have about 2 days to see some Cotswold villages in September. I like the look of Chipping Campden and Broadway (and of course Stratford-upon-Avon) but am wondering if I am missing out on any other must sees.

I am travelling with mum and we are more interested in short walks (less than 5 miles within villages or in the countryside), and looking at lovely houses, etc than being inside museums.

We will have a hire car.

Sorry to have to post this in the Stratford-upon-Avon section. I couldn't find a 'Cotswolds' section.

Injured Birds on the river

I was walking near the river tonight and spotted an injured canadian goose with a bad leg. It couldn't put weight on it and didn't look to be able to swim.
Do people check the birds over at any time? I heard that they were looked after but wasn't sure if they just fed them.
I hate seeing any animal hurt so hope that people do check them, because Stratford isn't the best at night and would hate for it to get hurt.

Your response would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards Caroline Wright

Hertz car rental in Stratford  (1 Answer)


I see on Hertz car rental's website that they have a pick-up office at 1 Abbey Road in Straford-on-Avon, but I can't find any evidence of that on Stratord's websites, including the official tourist site or the railway station's site, so I'm a little suspicious of Hertz's claim. :) Can anyone verify that there are Hertz cars typically available to hire near the rail station in Stratford?
