If theatre is your thing there is, of course, the Royal Shakespeare Theatre but why not try one of the smaller local theatres in the town. The Bear Pit Theatre and The Attic Theatre stage regular productions and have some great performances on the way.

One of the most stunning art galleries outside London is to be found at Compton Verney, a short drive from Stratford. An 18th century country manor house, Compton Verney was bought by Sir Peter Moores in1993 and gifted it to the specially-created charitable trust Compton Verney House Trust (CVHT).
