So much to do in
Covid-19 update – please note, following Government guidelines, much of the usual events and activities in and around Bell Court are currently on hold or have been adapted to reflect social distancing measures. (last updated Feb 9th 2021)
Being located at the very centre of Stratford-upon-Avon, means that Bell Court is surrounded by other fantastic attractions; helping you to make the most of your day in this beautiful, medieval town.
Known for being the birthplace of Shakespeare, England’s most famous writer, Stratford-upon-Avon is steeped in history. There’s plenty for you to discover, including Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Shakespeare’s New Place, Hall’s Croft, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Mary Arden’s Farm. Alternatively, take the time to see one of the Bard’s plays for yourself at the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre.
In addition to Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is a popular riverside destination. Take a Canal and River Tour to see Stratford by boat or, if you’re feeling a little more energetic why not hire your own rowing boat from Avon Boating? If you’d rather not leave dry land, join the popular Stratford Town Walk or hop on the City Sightseeing open top bus.
There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained too. Enter the magical wizarding world at Magic Alley, discover mechanical wonders at the MAD museum or explore the tropical paradise of Stratford-upon-Avon Butterfly Farm. Additionally, visit our What’s On page to keep up to date with year-round events.
With so much to see and do, and with all the shops, restaurants and Everyman Cinema at Bell Court, the biggest question is how are you going to fit it all in?
