Places to Visit Spring/Summer 2012 – Stratford-Upon-Avon

Standard

Well, I hope you all enjoyed the Tim Flach Photography series which has now ended – Boohoo! (Thank you Sarah from Modern Country Style for your kind words)

HOWEVER, good news on the series front. As you can tell by the title of this post, I want to give you all some good, nay, Brilliant ideas of where to go this summer! And I’m so excited I’m posting this one a day early!

Me and my husband realised we probably can’t afford a real holiday this year so we may plan day trips instead throughout the spring and summer so we get to do something together and it’s away from the norm.

These are just suggestions and I have to be honest they’ll come a lot from where I’ve been or want to go!

First up – Stratford-Upon-Avon

Yes, I have been here before, the wee town where Shakespeare lived, but I SOOOO want to go back again because it was fabulous…..

Now this town has so much to offer with it’s obvious historical interests, very beautiful setting, array of shops and markets (which sell very nice silver rings if I remember correctly), theatre and of course rowing a little boat down the Avon which I did with my family taking a picnic and eating on the river – So idyllic!

And if you venture just outside Stratford then you can visit Anne Hathaway’s cottage – where the young Shakespeare courted his future wife Anne Hathaway. It’s a beautiful cottage filled with history where Shakespeare himself actually stood and breathed and outside are the most beautiful gardens with traditional shrubs and beautiful flowers!
