Today enjoy a tour around the historic heart of England. Stratford-upon-Avon is the birthplace and home of William Shakespeare and his house can still be visited, the local church contains his grave and time permitting the house of Mary Arden, his mother, is well worth viewing. The river with its pleasure boats is a colourful focal point of the town in summer. From Stratford, travel the short distance to Warwick to see perhaps Britain’s best preserved medieval castle, Warwick Castle. The Kingmaker’s House, the dungeon, the gardens and the fascinating display of weaponry are just some of the highlights of a visit to the castle. Return to you hotel in the Coventry/Birmingham area.
