About YHA Stratford-upon-Avon

Great base for Shakespeare attractions

There’s more to Stratford-upon-Avon than Shakespeare – theatre, history and culture buffs of every language love this world-famous location. YHA Stratford-upon-Avon offers a superb base for groups and school trips, boasting a stylish bar and restaurant, a well-equipped meeting room and free Wi-Fi. Work on your next play using our data projector, flipchart, and microphone and DVD equipment.

Hemmingford’s Restaurant makes a great place for groups to eat and relax, and we offer a delicious breakfast and packed lunch. You’ll also find live music in our licensed bar – not to mention drama and performing arts workshops for school groups. There’s a games room and TV lounge too.

From the medieval marvel of Warwick Castle nearby, to an epic range of Shakespeare attractions, we’re the perfect choice for school trips and budding historians. Theatre lovers will find a year-round programme of classic and contemporary performances, and we’re only a couple of miles from the action. After an exciting day out, return to a stunning Georgian mansion and three acres of grounds.
