Getting Here

Coaches bringing visitors to Shakespeare's Birthplace are permitted to drop off and pick up groups directly from Windsor Street coach park, just one minute's walk from the front door of our Visitors Centre. The coach can then wait for the group at the Stratford Leisure Centre coach park.

There is free coach parking located at Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Mary Arden's Farm. Coaches are permitted to wait there free of charge until the group has completed its visit.

Coaches are permitted to drop off groups in front of Hall's Croft and Harvard House but must then wait for the group at the Leisure Centre.
