Theatre Breaks Stratford-upon-Avon


Choose the Swan’s Nest hotel for the perfect Theatre break in Stratford-upon-Avon.

You can relax and enjoy your theatre break so much more knowing that you will be back in the hotel in just a few minutes following curtain up, to enjoy a nightcap and a great night’s sleep.

For a small charge the hotel has private parking with an overflow just next door in a large pay and display facility.

The hotel is easy to find and, after you have checked in, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre is just a 5 minute scenic walk from the hotel. You can choose from no less than 3 theatres to see the very best of contemporary Shakespeare productions and also many other performances.

After your show return to The Bear, our traditional English pub  and soak up the atmosphere before a comfortable night’s sleep and a delicious breakfast the following morning.

You can even explore the town on foot the next day, taking in some of the sights before departing, or extend your stay and make a weekend of it.
