Full description

Step into the world of the TV show 'Shakespeare and Hathaway: Private Investigators' on this guided walking tour of Stratford-upon-Avon. Discover sights from the hit BBC daytime crime drama which is set and filmed in Shakespeare’s home town and pays tribute to the great writer’s plays.

Meet your guide to Shakespeare’s Birthplace, just a short walk from Stratford-upon-Avon railway station. Jump straight into your first locations from the show as you visit the site where Luella and Frank find a client with amnesia. 

Be entertained with anecdotes from the show as you are guided through this beautiful market town. As you go along you’ll see visuals from the series, showing you were some of the funniest, most touching, and memorable moments from all where all four seasons were filmed. 

View where the pedal boat chase scene took place, where Sebastian helps Gloria scatter her dog’s ashes, and the spot where the tour group discovers the severed hand. Meander by Tudor style houses, shops, and cafes which form the backdrop to the show. 

Go for a stroll along the cobbled street used as the exterior to Gloria’s costume shop and Sebastian’s flat. Walk on the banks of the Avon River where you’ll pass by the boat club that was used as the finale of season 1. 

Snap a photo of the spot where Frank Hathaway was arrested on suspicion of murder. The tour stops by several of Stratford-upon-Avon’s top attractions, including the UK’s largest Butterfly Farm, Tudor World, the Stratford Big Wheel, and the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Stop outside 'The Other Place," Stratford’s other theater, where Sebastian got to play Hamlet and Lu and Frank had to save the star of Juliet and Romeo. Go by famous statues including the Jester and a statue of William Shakespeare. 

Beware of gangsters on the final leg of the tour as you look for locations featured in the episode ‘The Cursed Hand.’ The tour finishes by Holy Trinity Church, where William Shakespeare was baptized, married and buried.

Follow your guide around the tranquil churchyard and see locations from several episodes, including when Frank’s paid £5K to go on a hike, Lu chases a pensioner in an electric wheelchair, and where Sebastian poses for selfies as William Shakespeare’s ghost.
