Things to do: Camping in Warwickshire
During the summer and peak seasons, Warwickshire’s numbers swell, drawing visitors from all over the globe to major attractions including Warwick Castle, the Warwick Folk Festival and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford.
The medieval town of Stratford-upon-Avon is jam-packed with things to do and places to explore.
Take a walk along the banks of the scenic River Avon, take a cruise on a barge to learn about the rivers important role in the Industrial Revolution or hire out a rowing boat for a gentle journey along the waterway. The River Avon is a focal point of the town, providing scenic views year-round. Have a picnic on the banks, enjoy a riverside drink or take your pooch on a pretty walk.
You’ll be hard-pressed to not explore Shakespeare’s links with the town during your visit. As well as the many statues, plaques and information boards throughout the town, there are a few places of interest worth visiting. Shakespeare’s birthplace is a shrine to the Bard and his life growing up. The restored 16th-century building is full of memorabilia and stories of his family life. You could also visit Ann Hathaway’s Cottage to see where Shakespeare courted his bride. Tours of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s theatre are available as well as the programme of plays.
Stratford’s Butterfly Farm has been a family attraction since 1985, welcoming visitors from across the UK. Walk through the butterfly house and see the life journey of the insects as well as spectacular colour and pattern variations.
The Mechanical Art & Design Museum celebrates innovation and helps to open up the imagination of all ages. It’s in the centre of Stratford so you’ll find plenty of places to eat nearby.
It’s around a 45-minute drive into Stratford-upon-Avon from our Kingsbury Water Park Club Site.
