Most of Stratford’s sunshine appears from May – Augustwhen average highs will run from about 16C (61F) to 22C (72F); lows could be between 6C (43F) – 10C (50F). We’d pick May as the best tourist month with fewer visitors on the streets but more sunshine along with modest warmth and lowish rainfall. Winters tend to be grey, damp and chilly with highs around 7C (45F) and lows around 0C (32F).
And finally after a hard day’s tourism it’s time for a genuine Tudor pizza and a glass of ale. The Tudor pub on the right, The Garrick Inn, was built in 1596. Photo by Tony Hisgett.
Good night, good night! parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say good night till it be morrow. William Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet.
