A day in Stratford-upon-Avon

On my first weekend I went to Stratford-upon-Avon to see the Royal Shakespeare Company’s performance of the Merchant of Venice. I was very impressed by the actors, the scenography and the costumes and the whole experience was really quite amazing! Before it was time to head back home to Birmingham I had some time to explore the city and visit a few of the many inviting English bars, cafes and restaurants. I also took a walk along the river and visited the Holy Trinity Church – apparently one of Englands most beautiful parish churches and the place where William Shakespeare is buried! Needless to say, I had a very pleasant day in Stratford.
