The Royal Shakespeare Theatre is a large national theatre owned by the Royal Shakespeare Company and is probably the most famous classical theatre company in the world.

Based in Stratford upon Avon it is easily reached from our base at Alvechurch.

The Bristol Hippodrome can be visited from our Canal Boat Holiday resort at Hilperton and during June and July they are hosting Footloose.
