Royal Shakespeare Company

Welcome to the RSC, in Shakespeare's hometown, Stratford-upon-Avon. We are open every day (opening times), so come and explore our theatres, go to the top of our Tower, take a tour, visit our free exhibitions, our café and Rooftop Restaurant. Families are welcome with access for pushchairs and wheelchairs and good baby changing facilities.

We also perform in Newcastle upon Tyne and London, and tour nationally and internationally see what's on now.
