Shakespeare and the Gloucester & Warwickshire Railway

Join us on another fantastic Bridge and Rail Holiday - this time we add a touch of Shakespeare!

We stay at the 4* Delta by Marriott Warwick (Formerly the Hilton) which is just a 5 minute drive from historic Stratford upon Avon and situated less than 2 miles from Warwick Castle.

An included guided tour takes us to two key properties in Shakespeare’s history – Anne Hathaway’s pretty home and the small cottage tucked away amongst the High Street in Stratford where Shakespeare was born.

Our second included excursion is aboard the Gloucester and Warwickshire Railway, a heritage railway run by volunteers. We step aboard the steam train in Broadway and enjoy a nostalgic journey to Cheltenham before returning to Broadway where there’s time at leisure to explore this quaint village.
