We hit Stratford on the way "home" from London, and spent something like 6 hours there. So right off the train we bought tickets for the tour bus that lets you hop on and off as much as you like. Woohoo! When it got to the end of the tour we decided to just stay on the bus for the 15 minutes until the next tour. Ali decided it was nap time for her - it had been a rather tiring past couple of days.
This is the church where William Shakespeare is buried. His stone is inside, his body buried something like 18 feet underneath it. He REALLY didn't want anyone to move his bones (it was common practice then). So he wrote a curse to be placed on the stone, and it was, and nobody has ever even tried to get to them. All his family's in there too.
