Exciting things to do in Stratford-upon-Avon

Most visitors to Stratford-upon-Avon come because of the William Shakespeare connection - this is the birthplace of the famous playwright and you can visit his childhood home, his final resting place (Holy Trinity Church), Anne Hathaway's Cottage and many other historic buildings which are connected to the playwright. These are some of the most visited attractions in the town. But this beautiful market town has much more to offer to its visitors. Other popular attractions in Stratford-upon-Avon include the Mechanical Art and Design (MAD) Museum, Butterfly Farm (where you can get really close to exotic butterflies) and Tudor's World - The Falstaff's Experience where you can enjoy a scary insight into the life of Tudors. Hiring a boat (rowing boats, self-drive motor boats and canoes) on the river Avon is also very popular activity with visitors especially when the weather is nice and sunny.

Charlecote Park, Warwickshire | National Trust

The National Trust has some really lovely properties in England. Stately homes, gardens and parks dotted around the English countryside - all perfect for families. Wherever you live in England, I am sure there will be a National Trust property on your doorstep. We have quite a few NT properties within a 2 hours radius from Enfield and we try to visit them whenever we get the chance. Waddesdon Manor (in Buckinghamshire) which is managed by the Rothschild Foundation on behalf of the National Trust is one of our favourites.
