The medieval town of Stratford-upon-Avon will be our base for this one-of-a-kind, New Years’ experience. On this five-day rail holiday, you will be able to immerse yourself in all things Shakespeare, as we discover the playwright’s birthplace, tucked away in the middle of Stratford’s pretty high street. We will also visit the Shakespeare's Schoolroom and Guildhall, before taking in a matinee performance of The Magician’s Elephant - a brand new musical adapted from Kate DiCamillo's prize-winning novel, at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. You will also enjoy a fascinating steam train ride on the Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway before celebrating the New Year in style at a fabulous five course gala dinner. There is no better way to bring in the New Year!
