Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of Shakespeare is a gorgeous town and a must see if you are in the Midlands area of England. We spent two days visiting Shakespeare's old stomping grounds, which alone was pretty awesome, but it was a charming town as well with tons to do for the kids. Bronwen enjoyed visiting the birthplace of the author of Gnomeo & Juliet (she watched on our last flight back from WA) and by the end of the trip we had both kids reciting excerpts from Romeo and Juliet:
Bronwen & Alex: "Soft! Look out the window breaks!"
(Romeo: "But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?")
Hee hee :)
