Privilege room


Shakespeare's Birthplace


A beautiful Tudor inn situated in Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon - includes full English breakfast and afternoon tea

The Mercure Shakespeare Hotel is located in the historic town of Stratford-upon-Avon - the erstwhile home of the great playwright. The hotel was constructed as an inn house in the 17th century and like many of the other buildings in the town, is built in the traditional black and white timber style of Tudor architecture.

Guests at the hotel can enjoy a comfy night's sleep in rooms named after some of Shakespeare's immortalised characters. The interiors boast period features such as oak-beamed ceilings, open fireplaces and antique furniture, all of which sit comfortably alongside more modern design features.

The hotel is just a five-minute walk from the high street and within close proximity of the town's literary attractions.
