    Guide Friday/City Sightseeing buses

    Guide Friday bus

    The bus runs round town every 15/30 minutes, stopping somewhere near all the major tourist spots (Shakespeare's birthplace itself is on a pedestrianised street, so I won't say it stops outside!). They're very colourful so you won't miss them.

    They have a running commentary so you get a bit of information too.

    But personally, I think that Stratford is small enough to walk round without needing to get a bus. Get a good guide book and you're sorted. The bus does also go to the out of town sites like Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Mary Arden's House, but personally I prefer to walk to Anne Hathaway's Cottage (Shottery) anyway, it's about a mile and is quite a nice walk.

    Trains

    There is a frequent Thames Trains service to Stratford from London passing Oxford en route. On our return the train was cancelled - leaves on the track - British rail is running out of excuses - so we had to take the slowest bus ever back. Anyway, there are train and bus services to Stratford from most UK towns & cities and these are your best bet if you don't have a car.

    Walk

    Walking around the town is the best way to see Stratford. It's a small town and most of the major sites are close to the centre. If you plan to see Mary Arden's house or Anne Hathaway's house, then a car would be handy. You could also take the Stratford tour bus.

    Snail's pace

    If you have the time a holiday on the canals of England can be restful, stress free and relaxing but if you need to get back to London for your flight leave plenty of time to check in...
