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:

About 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.
