Living in Stratford-upon-Avon

Shakespeare’s home town

We can’t talk about Stratford-Upon-Avon without mentioning William Shakespeare. This town is his birthplace and is now home to the Royal Shakespeare Company - one of the most well-known theatre companies in the world. You can visit Shakespeare’s birthplace and school and see his grave in Holy Trinity Church. If you want a career in performing arts or simply a dash of culture, this is the location to live.

Quirky attractions

As well as Shakespeare, the market town is known for its quirky, unusual attractions that you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Its Magical Alley is an enchanting shop that’s full of mythical creatures, fantasy books and spell-binding displays - you might also get to make a potion or two! There’s also the MAD Museum, ideal for steampunk fans, a ghost tour and a historical armoury.

Other attractions include the Tudor World Museum, an interactive, immersive experience, Butterfly Farm and Go To Hatton Adventure World - featuring a variety of farmyard animals. And at Christmas, the Victorian Christmas Market takes over the town, with local traders kitted out in full Victorian gear. You’ll always find something to do when buying a home here.

Excellent education

Having the world’s most famous playwright attributed to its name, it’s no wonder that Stratford’s schools are top-class. There are plenty of primary and secondary schools to choose from in the area, with many rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.

And when the time comes for university, you don’t have to look very far. Warwickshire has two universities that are easy to get to from Stratford - the University of Warwick, a top 10 UK university, and Coventry University. The county’s proximity to Birmingham also means the University of Birmingham isn’t far, either. With close access to some of the country’s top educational institutions, Stratford is ideal for families looking to buy a home.
