Macdonald Hotels in Stratford-upon-Avon

About Our Macdonald Hotels in Stratford-upon-Avon

This market town in South Warwickshire rests on the banks of the River Avon. The town is most notably the birthplace of the playwright and poet William Shakespeare and is home to The Royal Shakespeare Company. Despite being one of Britain's most important cultural centres, Stratford boasts a wide range of attractions - from medieval architecture to historic railway links . Stay in Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel or Macdonald Swan's Nest Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare is all around you.

There are five beautifully-preserved 16th century houses with a Shakespeare connection to explore. These include his birthplace and future wife's home. Then, at the Holy Trinity Church you can see where both Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway were laid to rest. The actors of the Royal Shakespeare Company bring the bard's words to dramatic life at their newly-refurbished theatre on the Avon.

The river Avon is a great place to relax, walk, row, enjoy a cruise or watch the crazy river races. There's lots more fun when you visit the Falstaff Experience. It'll whisk you back to the days of the Tudors with a brand of living theatre performed in a unique venue that's genuinely haunted.
