Shakespeare En Route

July 20, 2014 — 43 Comments

Last Saturday the 12th July I was due to leave on a late flight for a fortnights holiday. It was such a lovely day that my Mum decided that it would be great opportunity to make the most of the trip and stop somewhere nice for the afternoon. We decided on Stratford Upon Avon, it is a beautiful town with plenty of history and makes a great place to wander around on lovely summer’s day.

We arrived just after lunch and there was boating regatta taking place on the river so the town was bustling with extra visitors. My Dad dropped us in the town centre and went off to find somewhere to park the car. My Mum suggested that we take a walk down to the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre and have a look around. It was full of interesting displays and little gift shops. When my Dad caught up with us we decided to have a wander around and get a better feel for the place.

We had a lovely afternoon, enjoying the summer sunshine and taking in the history of the place. The time flew and before we knew it it was time to make a move and head off towards the airport so that i could catch my flight. It was a fabulous way to start my holiday and I was so pleased that my Mum suggested it 🙂
