TravelPod Member ReviewsThe New Inn Stratford-upon-Avon
The New Inn is 5km outside Stratford. It is rated as a 2 star hotel but it deserves much more. The rooms are spacious and comfy, the staff are friendly and the food is fine. It only cost £49 per night. The only draw back is that you have to lug your cases up about 20 very steep, high steps to reach your room and unpack (with the opposite when you are leaving).

Anyway, I am really tired tonight and am off to bed early to get ready for another big day ...

We will hopefully get some photos up here too. Well that's it, we shall sign off from our first blog, the time difference in NZ is 11 hours ahead and we are due to land 1300 Saturday. See you on the flip ...
... activities. They had animals, a blacksmith, a carpenter who was turning wooden spindles on a hand lathe, sword play demonstration etc. Mary Arden was Shakespeare’s mother.

William Shakespeare’s father, John was the son of one of the tenants on the farm so the families knew each other but were of different classes. When Mary’s father ...
