Shakespeare's Stratford

I was in Stratford recently upgrading our Shakespeare’s Stratford Treasure Trail. Whilst there, I popped into the theatre to see a sculpture I’d heard about.

Shakespeare's Stars

The sculpture is in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Loads of stuff is going on all the time there, not just plays!

You can just walk in to see the sculpture from the side doors and up the stairs. According to the plaque it is made up of two thousand metal stars that shimmer and explore Shakespeare’s obsession with time. It is stunning, as is the view from where it is situated.

You should definitely go and see it next time you are in Stratford. 

Stratford's Restaurants

There are a huge number of places to eat and drink in Stratford. I had fish and chips for lunch. The restaurant was on Waterside, just opposite the theatre. It was a generous portion and delicious.

In the evening we went to a newly opened restaurant called Loxley’s. I had one of the best vegetarian meals I’ve had for a long time. My dish was described as Smoked Tofu, Puy Lentil & Aubergine Fritters, ‘Buffalo’ Cauliflower, Pepper Puree, Tomato & Smoked Chilli Salsa £14.95! Absolutely fabulous!

Things to do

There is so much to see and do in Stratford, I find it difficult to pick out just one thing (apart from a Treasure Trail of course!) One of our favourite things though to do on rainy days is the MAD museum.

We have also been to an Escape Room in the town which we had fun trying to escape from with friends!

Or on sunny days you could just take a picnic and enjoy the atmosphere.
