Was part of a couple of days at Stratford. Unfortunately there were no plays on but what a wonderful building with lots to see and do. Worth a visit especially when a play is on

We attended a presentation of "King John" at the RST. The cast featured a wonderful actress playing the lead role. There were some modern twists that made the show fun and exciting. FANTASTIC! The theatre itself is fairly small so we felt very close to...More

A must visit when in Stratford-upon-Avon. Beautiful inside and out, right on the River Avon. Good views from all seats. Very impressive production of King John.

Was told there was seats available only to turn up and be told they had been sold even though the computerised seating plan showed they were available. Very unprofessional.

Visitors daily fill the streets around this centre of RSC activity but, by disappearing before dusk, most deny themselves the opportunity to experience the best of Shakespeare's repertoire.

A must place to see a play not just because of its iconic status, not just because the staff are helpful, not because the seating is comfortable, simply because you can.
