Stratford Upon Avon

Stratford Upon Avon
  Hi All
I am going for a (hopefully) romantic weekend away this afternoon to Stratford. My boyfriend and I have been having some problems lately and we are hoping to inject some romance into our lives whilst incorporating the last of our Christmas shopping. We are staying at the Holiday Inn which has a pool and I have booked Bensons Tea Rooms for tomorrow afternoon. We are hoping to go shopping tomorrow and maybe a bit of sight seeing Sunday. Any other ideas of must do's or recommendations for food?


Hi there, I went to Stratford a couple of months ago and had a lovely weekend. We also stayed at the Holiday Inn, which was nice, few extras like toweling robes and slippers which you often don't get at HIs.
We went to see a play, and ate at a few places but the one I'd recommend is the Vintner. Not top top end, but good. Lovely atmosphere, very cosy, good food and friendly staff. uiID=42
We had an awful lunch at 'Georgetown'--the food was OK but the piano player was falling around drunk and there was food smeared on the wall by my head...not too appetising!
We just had a nice time wandering around really...the shopping's good and the buildings are beautiful.
Hope you have a lovely romantic time :)


Where could be more romantic than Shakespeare's birthplace?
Sweet love, renew thy force; be it not said
Thy edge should blunter be than appetite,
Which but to-day by feeding is allay'd,
To-morrow sharpen'd in his former might:
So, love, be thou; although to-day thou fill
Thy hungry eyes even till they wink with fullness,
To-morrow see again, and do not kill
The spirit of love with a perpetual dullness.
Let this sad interim like the ocean be
Which parts the shore, where two contracted new
Come daily to the banks, that, when they see
Return of love, more blest may be the view;
Else call it winter, which being full of care
Makes summer's welcome thrice more wish'd, more rare.

You can recite that to him :heartpop:
Stratford is lovely, especially this time of year, as it's quieter and less touristy.
There's a walk along the river bank, with the swans gliding by. Lots of quaint shops in tucked away streets.
Romeo and Juliet is on at the RSC :)


Thank you for that. I am pleased we have picked the right place. I think we will be avoiding the theatre as I am not into Shakespeare much, although I won't tell the locals! Much prefer eating and relaxing. I'll let you know how I get on!


Hehe best not to.
You will at least fall in love with the place ;)
