Every visitor to Shakespeare's England needs to have access to the right information to ensure their time spent here is memorable for all the right reasons; for visitors with accessibility needs or medical conditions, this information can be critical.

Planning Your Visit

Shakespeare’s England and its partners are committed to providing all visitors with a fantastic experience. Our aim is to provide relevant information to assist you with planning your visit to the Warwickshire region. Should you need further assistance, please contact us to discuss your access requirements.


Together with Stratford-on-Avon District Council, Warwick District Council, Royal Shakespeare Company, Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust and the Stratford BID, we are proud to be working with AccessAble (formerly DisabledGo) to produce detailed accessibility guides for a variety of venues across South Warwickshire, including accommodation, attractions, restaurants and more.

There are many independently produced business listings on the AccessAble website, featuring information about parking, access and the facilities inside the building such as toilets and reception desks.
