Situated on the banks of the river Avon, is the quaint little village of Stratford (hence the name 'Stratford upon Avon)....

Royal Shakespeare Company
Still, after living here for the last year, I've been able to see that it is possible to visit Stratford and do a lot of the usual touristy stuff – seeing a Shakespeare play at the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre, visiting his birthplace, possibly even doing something non-Shakespeare (Heaven forbid!) – without breaking the bank too much. I want to point out that nowhere has asked me to advertise them, and I am receiving no compensation whatsoever for any endorsements that I may seem to give! Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, these are my suggestions for a "budget" weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon:
For example, from London (Marylebone), a journey can be as low as £6 one way if you choose the right time. If nothing looks cheap, try looking up the price from your destination to Birmingham - strangely, it will sometimes me much cheaper to buy a ticket to Birmingham and then a separate one to Stratford-upon-Avon, rather than buying one ticket. This, of course, makes no sense, but there we go - I paid £17 + 7 from Pwllheli, rather than the £56 I was quoted when I searched for Pwllheli-Stratford.
