Welcome to Stratfordblog. The new blog that guides visitors and locals towards the best of Stratford-upon-Avon, from spa hotels to steaks, picnic spots to pre-theatre restaurants, cafes to cocktail joints.
Stratfordblog is the place to be for fresh news, in-depth views and personal reviews of the best of Stratford-upon-Avon.
This is not a travel guide. This is an enjoyment guide.
This blog is for you: the residents, the visitors, the families, the couples, and anyone who loves Stratford-upon-Avon.
Stratford-upon-Avon is a terrific place to live and visit. It’s small, historic, pretty and cultural. It’s packed with places to eat, things to see and do, and more cafes than you can shake a handful of coffee beans at.
But where to get a cracking brunch on Saturday, I hear you ask. How can I save money? What’s new for this year? Should I get an annual pass for the Shakespeare properties? Where can I get a good cup of coffee when I have a pushchair?
That last question put hot air in the balloon of Stratfordblog.
There are plenty of local resources online, but none that really step into the minds of visitors and locals who want instant access to the very best of Stratford-upon-Avon. None that guide you towards the cosy pubs with roaring log fires, the Instagram-worthy picture viewpoints, or places you can visit with your dog.
