Let us help you plan your ideal vacation in Warwickshire...

Warwickshire includes the cities of Rugby, Coventry and Warwick with its magnificent castle, and is also the county of Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon.

Originally founded by the Normans in 1068, Warwick Castle has been updated a number of times through the centuries. Today's castle has been developed as a tourist attraction.

Visit and experience the dungeons, the Great Hall, State Rooms. Climb some of the towers and visit the well laid out exhibitions (many with wax figures - the castle is now part of the Tussauds group).

Many forms of medieval entertainment are staged at the castle throughout the year and the castle is a concert venue for major artists.

Anne Hathaway's Cottage, is probably one of the most famous houses in the world. Located just a short distance from the centre of Statford-upon-Avon, this 15th century thatched cottage with its picturesque garden was home to Ann Hathaway whom William Shakespeare married when he was just 18.

   


His twin daughters, Hamnet and Judith, were born just six months later and continued to live here with their mother even though William lived and worked for most of his time in London, paying frequent visits his family in Stratford. Two years before he died, William and his family moved to another house in Stratford, New Place, which was later demolished.
