Tower trips

  • The Tower

    The Royal Shakespeare Theatre Tower rises 36 metres above the River Avon

  • Family at the tower

    Fantastic views of Shakespeare's home town 

  • View from the tower

    View west from the Tower, overlooking Holy Trinity Church, where Shakespeare is buried

Take a trip up the Tower to enjoy views across Stratford-upon-Avon and beyond.

A lift will take you up to the viewing platform and, as you descend via the stairs, you will discover an exhibition installed on the walls and in the alcoves.

Our friendly staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
