School Trips to Stratford-Upon-Avon

A school trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon will give your students the opportunity to explore the beautiful Warwickshire town that was the birthplace of England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare!

A great choice for both history and English school trips, Stratford-Upon-Avon is also a brilliant option for a cross-curricular school trip within the UK.

And being in central England, Stratford-Upon-Avon is within easy reach of most schools, meaning you won’t have to spend too long on the coach to enjoy this exciting educational opportunity.

Coach Trip

Of course, most people who come to Stratford-Upon-Avon do so because they want to learn more about William Shakespeare, England’s greatest playwright. But did you know that the town didn’t become the tourist attraction it is today until around 150 years after Shakespeare’s death?

In 1769, David Garrick, himself a talented playwright and actor, organised a major Shakespeare Jubilee over three days. This sparked an influx of tourists to the Bard’s hometown that continues to this day.

Stratford-Upon-Avon also offers the perfect base from which to explore some of the finest Tudor mansions in the country, including Kenilworth Castle and Kirby Hall – ideal for any groups studying the Tudor period, the Golden Age and the Reformation.
