Stratford Upon Avon - What a beautiful place...

This weekend my boyfriend and I decieded to visit Stratford Upon Avon, a beautiful town in the west midlands. For most of my life I lived about 15 minutes away from Stratford, yet only really visited twice a year, once in the summer and once to see the Christmas lights (they are amazing!). But since going to university and then moving to the East Midlands I've only been there once, for my friend's Hen Party. Stratford has a nice combination of little, cute shops and high street shops, making it the perfect place to shop! I thought that the January Sales would be over now but I was suprised at how many shops STILL have their sales on. I bought a couple more great bargains in the sales, which I will show you in a later blog post.

Stratford is probably most known for being the birthplace of Shakespeare! There are a lot of 'touristy' things you can do, visit museums, theatre, loads of LOVELY restaurants on Sheep Street and tour guides. It was really busy when we visited (probably as it was the first warmish day of 2013!) but that's part of the experience of Stratford.

We went to a cute tearooms called Hobsons for tea and cake, I had chocolate fudge cake and my boyfriend had toffee cake, delicious! Hobsons is full of such a vast range of different cakes, cheesecakes, tray bakes, scones and quiches. It's really hard to choose, especially for a cake lover like me! A slice of cake is £2.55 there, which is quite a standard price but when we left they had a stand outside selling off slices of cake that were left over from the day for £1!! We just HAD to buy two more slices of cake! Woops!

It was a lovely day with blue skies and loads of sunshine :)

Have you visited Stratford Upon Avon before?
