Famous as the birthplace of William Shakespeare, the Warwickshire market town of Stratford-upon-Avon has attracted visitors to its streets and ancient buildings for centuries. Its status as a market town in the medieval period is in evidence in the fifteenth-century stone-built Clopton Bridge over the River Avon and the Holy Trinity Church, as is the wealth of the later Elizabethan and Georgian buildings. Today visitors come to see Shakespeare’s birthplace and the buildings associated with him, attend the Royal Shakespeare Theatre or the other theatres in the town, or just explore the historical streets.


In A–Z of Stratford-upon-Avon author Will Adams reveals the history behind the town, its streets and buildings and the people connected with it. Alongside the famous historical connections, he includes some unusual characters, tucked-away places and unique events that are less well known. This fascinating A–Z tour of Stratford-upon-Avon’s history is fully illustrated and will appeal to all those with an interest in this historic Warwickshire town.
