Last weekend we decided to go away on a very short trip to the Shakespeare town Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. A really picturesque small place, even better after all the tourists have gone.
Unfortunately we only found out after we booked the hotel that the famous Royal Shakespeare Company in their amazing new theatre doesn´t perform on sundays. Hmm...we made the best out of it and went on a backstage tour instead (and some shopping in their fantastic gift shop). Highly recommendable and next time we will go and see them live and in action.
On the way we visited several National trust properties where some of the photos are taken (Claydon House, Upton House, Charlecote Park)
