  1. A walk back in time 🙂 Love going to museum to have a glimpse of history and understand its influence over the people of today 🙂

  2. Great place to visit for a little literature history, for kids and adults. Sheakespeare’s “bedroom” looked quite inviting with that duvet and the paintings on the wall. Glad you had a good time there.

  3. This is one of my favorite towns in the Uk, I used to visit often when I lived in Oxford. The houses are so cute, loved the architecture and the river avon that crosses the city is awesome! Worth visiting even if you are not a Sheakspears lover!

  4. Wow, what a quaint little Shakespearean village! It must be quite an experience seeing actors portraying one of his plays with all this in the backdrop; almost like you’re really there in the milieu he wrote it in!

  5. I visited here when I was really young and so don’t really remember too much! It’s great seeing these photos and getting an idea of where I went. Might just have to re-visit!!
