Families are always welcome on The Shakespeare Express. The Family Tickets are valid for 2 Adults and 2 Children between 5 and 15 years of age. Children under 5 do not require a ticket, but will need to travel on a parent or guardian’s lap as the child will not be assigned a seat.
A Family ticket from Birmingham to Stratford-upon-Avon and return is £55 when booked in advance. Journey A departs Birmingham Snow Hill at 10:00 arriving into Stratford at 11:37. If you then catch Journey D as your return, departing at 16:13 this affords you over 4 hours to explore Shakespeare’s Birthplace, the Royal Shakespeare Company (including the Clock Tower) or take to the river on a cruse. The more adventurous amongst you might consider renting your own row-boat or a punt – don’t forget the straw hat!
A Family ticket beginning your adventure in Stratford-upon-Avon and departing on Journey B at 12:36, returning on Journey C costs only £35 when booked in advance. Why not take advantage of this amazing offer and enjoy the speed, sights, sounds (and smells) of a fully functional mainline steam locomotive.
