An American travel review of Will's birthplace: "A visit to Stratford-upon-Avon is worthwhile, but keep in mind that this town knows which side its scones are buttered on. Shakespeare is the cottage industry here, and amusements range from boat rides along the river Avon to Falstaff's Experience, a bizarre tour of history hardly related to the favorite Shakespearean character. Even so, the town is a pleasant visit, with scores of Tudor half-timber buildings and Elizabethan decor in shops and restaurants. There is no Starbucks-upon-Avon."

The William Shakespeare Weblog is looking for contributions. If you want to comment or follow-up on something which has been mentioned or you have something which you think might of interest to readers please get in touch. We would particularly like to hear from anyone connected with a production of one of Will's plays for a prospective diary feature. Above all else Shakespeare's words are as relevant now as then and its important for this weblog to reflect that.
