Stratford 'Cream Tea Walk'
Wednesdays at 2pm:
5 August and 19 August
Stratford Town Walk have teamed up with Hathaway Tearooms to offer a special Wednesday afternoon experience during July and August. A gentle Town Walk, ending with a cream-tea, or if preferred, a full afternoon tea at Hathaway Tearooms.
Join Stratford Town Walk for a guided walking tour in Shakespeare's beautiful Stratford upon Avon. This guided walk is an enchanting way to discover Stratford and all it has to offer. It will start outside Shakespeare's Birthplace (opposite the Christmas shop) in Henley Street at 2pm.
The walk will follow the route of Stratford's historic spine, following in Shakespeare's footsteps between cradle and grave. The walk passes the Shakespeare town houses, grammar school, 15th century timber-framed buildings and the Royal Shakespeare Theatres. There will be an opportunity to see Shakespeare's grave in the Chancel, for a small payment of £1 per person to the Church on the day. The Chancel visit is optional and subject to Church opening times.
During the walk the guide provides entertaining and interesting insights into Shakespeare's life and family in Stratford. Hear stories of fires, flooding, plague, medieval cures, a little history and the origin of old-fashioned sayings.
The walk will end at the delightful quintessentially English, 16th century Hathaway Tea Rooms. Choose between a Cream Tea or a full Afternoon Tea
