There is so much history and culture to learn about in Stratford upon Avon - the best way is by bus. A few attractions are quite a distance from the town centre (for example, Anne Hathaway's Cottage). Perfect chance to sit back and take it all in on the open top bus. It was a little chilly on top deck... More

Expensive and difficult to take in the sights when the bus driver was hell bent in breaking the land speed record. The interior of the bus was like the inside of a dustbin. There was a foul stink that my wife discovered was due to dog excrement under one of the seats. This was pointed out to the driver who... More

Took the 10am bus round the whole route to get a feel for the place and decide where we were going to go. When I asked if there was a timetable the driver said to look at your watch when you got off, and it would be the same time last each hour that it would return. As one passed... More

This is a standard Hop On and Hop Off bus tour. It covers all the principal tourist places in and around Stratford upon Avon and the circular tour takes about one hour. However if you wish to visit any of the Shakespeare related sites – for example Anne Hathaway’s Cottage - then you must allow extra time. Seems obvious but....as... More

We spent 2 weeks on a narrowboat cruising the Severn River and then headed to Stratford for a couple days. We had been here 2 years ago, but didn't take the bus tour option. We did this time and it a great way to see the Shakespeare sites that are not right in the city. The buses run all day... More

Hop On Hop Off Tour Bus is an excellent way to get around a see the sights. Tour takes roughly 1 hour with 11 stops. Stay on bus to find out information about all the places to visit then you can decide where to go. Buses run every 30 minutes. 7 languages are spoken through ear pieces given when booking.... More

We learned a great deal on our tour and enjoyed it that much we did it again the next day as the tickets were valid for 48 hours. The hop on hop off facility is useful for visiting the more distant attractions.

Buy your passes for the Shakespeare Houses at the Information Centre along with your bus tickets. Savings made! Also jeep your ticket after your visit to get 10% discount off future City Sightseeing tours. We did, saving ours from the Oxford trip! The bus stops at most attractions both in the city and the surrounding countryside. Great.
