Experience a tantalising glimpse into the early world of The Bard, then enjoy a delicious three-course French meal at the Caf' Rouge Stratford-upon-Avon on this Visit to Shakespeares Birthplace and three-course meal for two. To millions of Shakespeare fans and enthusiasts worldwide Shakespeare's birthplace is a shrine, the place where the great playwright was born, raised and spent the first few years of married life. In the 400 years since his death, Shakespeare's family home has been preserved and restored and now sits next to the Shakespeare Centre, where you can see documents, displays and collections gathered from across The Bard's life by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. As you walk through the house you can imagine following in his footsteps and see where he would have eaten, slept and played as he grew to the prolific playwright we all know today. After you've delved into Shakespeare's early and married life you'll get to enjoy a delicious three-course Taste of Rouge menu at the nearby Caf' Rouge. From starter to dessert you'll be transported to the continent, accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine each for that true Parisian feel.
