The theatre, owned by Royal Shakespeare Company, is the first thing you notice in the city centre and many people start their tours right there. Its 32-metre-high tower packs a bar and a viewing platform on top of the stage.
Also known as Shakespeare’s Church, it’s England’s most visited Parish Church and the place of baptism and burial of the reknown poet. Thousands of people visit the site every year for a small contribution.
The 16th-century timbered house was the poet’s birthplace. It can be found in Henley Street and nowadays is home to a small museum with rare artefacts. By many people, it is also referred to as a “mecca of all literature lovers”.
