Shakespeare's birthplace, on the banks of the river Avon has a rich choice of hotels, historical buildings, numerous restaurants and is surrounded by rural countryside.
For Civil Weddings, thanks to the changes in Marriage Laws in 1995, you can now marry at any Register Office regardless of where you and your partner live.
The Marriage Act of 1994 allows civil wedding ceremonies to take place in venues other than the Register Office, such as hotels and stately homes and other approved locations.
