What You Can Expect
You can hop-on and off as many times as you like aboard this open-top double-decker bus. There are 14 stops and the entire route takes approximately 60 minutes. The bus departs every 10 - 15 minutes from each stop. Tickets are valid for 24 hours from first use.
Travel to all Shakespearean Houses: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Anne Hathaways Cottage, Mary Arden's House, New Place, Nash's House and Hall's Croft. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre where the Bard's plays are performed for the majority of the year. The Holy Trinity Church where Shakespeare is buried, protected by a cursed tombstone. The Old 15th Century Grammar School where Shakespeare was educated. You also get to enjoy a lovely tour through the scenic Warwickshire countryside, visiting Wilmcote, the village where Mary Arden's House (Shakespeare's mother) can be found.
This was my fourth trip to Stratford-upon-Avon. I take the bus tour every time because it gives me an overview of the city and stops at the most significant places.
Great way to see the highlights of the city. We got on and off when and where we wanted and got lots of information while on the bus. I highly recommend this as a way to see any city.
This the way to get around to the key locations. Very basic transportation and recorded commentary. But the key sites are too spread out to walk.
Great tour but had to wait 45 minutes for bus at ann hathaways cottage some people waited an hour
Overall this was great.
I came by train and asked at the station where I cou catch the bus. Received wrong information- it would have been nice to have a posting in the station as to where to catch the sightseeing bus
The tour was quite short compared to others I have been on throughout the UK but it was very interesting and entertaining. I also especially appreciated the flexibility offered - I purchased the tour for the Saturday but we decided to take the tour on the Sunday instead without any issue. Also, the stops were very convenient. We picked up the bus right outside our hotel - The Stratford - it also stopped at the Maybird Shopping Centre for a bit of shopping along the way and also stopped at the Waterside where there are many good restuarants for lunch - we ate at Carluccio's. All in all a really fun day.
The passes were great but the staff at the pick up point are clueless. Thank goodness for Mark, the bus driver who was the only one that had a clue what was going on.
