We recently enjoyed a weekend family break in Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare and stayed at the Mercure Stratford upon Avon Shakespeare Hotel, a 4 star hotel situated right in the heart of the historic town. I blogged about this stay on my cool things collection website but wanted to share it with travelphant.com readers as it was such a lovely town to visit and hotel to stay at.

Here just a few of the photographs I took of the hotel and the Christmas lights in the town.
