The Alveston Manor Hotel Stratford-upon-Avon is a beautiful Tudor style building that looks every inch the stately home it once was. The hotel sits in its own manicured grounds just five minutes walk along the Avon from the heart of the town.

Indeed legend has it that the first performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream took place on the Alveston Manor's Cedar Lawn.
The inside of the main building is very appealing, with plenty of wooden panelling and oak beams. The décor has not been updated for some time, but the slightly faded atmosphere is utterly charming.Of course, in order to keep up with the needs of a modern venue, there is also a newer wing to the rear.
