 Royal Shakespeare Company - Stratford-upon-Avon

The RSC re-opened the transformed Royal Shakespeare and Swan Theatres in November 2010. The building is open from 10am daily and you are invited to explore their new home at your leisure. As well as the new 1,000 seat thrust stage auditorium, the RSC offer fantastic views of Shakespeare’s home town from the Tower, regular Theatre Tours throughout the day, a changing programme of free exhibitions and a range of places to eat and drink, including the Rooftop Restaurant and Riverside Café and terrace.

Theatre Tours and Tower      

Rising 36 metres above the River Avon, the Tower provides fantastic views of Shakespeare's home town. A lift will take you to the 32 metre high viewing platform and, as you descend via the stairs, you will discover an exhibition installed on the walls and in the alcoves. The Tower is open from 10am daily

“We offer a range of guided tours to bring you closer to the world of theatre and find out more about the history behind the Royal Shakespeare Company, including our popular Behind the Scenes Tours and Front of House Tours. Please note, certain tours are only available on selected dates and that as the RSC is a busy producing theatre company, the auditoria are not always available as part of a tour.”
