Posted: Friday, 19 August 2016 @ 12:51

We have been improving homes and businesses across Stratford upon Avon since 1988 and we believe that we live and work in the most beautiful and interesting county in the country.

We want you to come to Stratford upon Avon this summer and experience either a wonderful day out or really push the boat out and stay for a bit longer. There’s plenty going on to keep you busy and entertained.

Here are our top 10 things to do and see when in Stratford upon Avon:

1 The Shops!

Held on the first and third Saturday on the month in Rother Street a great location to soak up the great agricultural landscape and pick up some delicious produce.

 

 

 

3 The Butterfly Farm

Stratford Butterfly Farm is the largest and most comprehensive attraction of its type in Europe. Well worth and visit plenty to do inside and out so if it does happen to rain it won’t spoil your day.

 

 

 

4 A Day At The Races

Racing Stratford upon AvonYes we have our very own race course; steeple chasing has been a regular event since 1755 and has around 14 meetings a year. Summer race days attract families who can picnic in the centre of the course, under 18’s have free admission and there is free children’s entertainment on afternoon weekend meetings during holiday time. Many of the top jockeys can be seen riding here so get your cameras ready!

Then the bus heads out of town to Anne Hathaways Cottage with its thatched roof, this is one of the most popular sights in Stratford.
