Stratford-upon-Avon : Michelin's recommendations
A charming little town of half-timbered houses on the shady banks of the River Avon, Stratford would be interesting enough without having given us the genius that was William Shakespeare, the English language’s greatest dramatist. Thanks to him the town is one of Britain’s most popular tourist destinations, with more than four million visitors annually.
