We had just visited Shakespeare's birthplace and spotted this statue at the end of the road. We both had our photos taken to add to the vast collection of photos taken during our visit to Stratford-upon-Avon.

Cool Statue and quotes good for a picture. Not a must but if you have the time why not. Remember, he wrote some good comedies too!

Not much to say really. It's a statue, made me smile, inscribed with quotes from Shakespeare plays but that's about it. Quick photo stop then move on.

I had to seek this statue out as I missed him last time we were in Stratford. I’m so glad I did. Whichever angle he’s viewed from he is a delight, and the monument is enhanced by the quotes from Shakespeare’s plays round the plinth.

Pass along Henley Street in any direction and The Jester statue can be clearly seen. It invites attention by its sheer unusualness!

I loved all the different character statues around Statford...this is at the end of Henley Street and very close to Shakespeare's birthplace so you can hardly miss it. Worth a look and a photo!

Basically a photo opportunity site at the top of Henley Street near to the Shakespeare Centre and birthplace. Worth a look.
