It all aboard for the Bard with Chiltern as commuters through London Marylebone Station will be met by a touch of Elizabethan charm on Friday 1 August.
Shakespeare’s England, which promotes tourism in South Warwickshire and surrounding areas, is bringing top attractions, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Shakespeare’s Birthplace (based in Stratford-upon-Avon) and Bicester Village to Marylebone Station, all of which are easily accessible by train.
The activity starts at 8am, and will include family workshops, face painting, and a group of actors from Shakespeare’s Birthplace who will be performing poems, plays and sonnets from the famous bard.
Robin Tjolle, Destination Manager at Shakespeare’s England said: “We are so pleased to be working with Chiltern Railways and be able to show how easily accessible Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa are from London and Birmingham by train. There are many fabulous attractions and places to stay throughout our area and it is so easy to get to. We are looking forward to a fantastic summer and everyone is welcome.”
The popular Bicester Village is also easily accessible from Bicester North. A regular shuttle bus service operates from the station to the village.
Chiltern Railways runs direct train services from London Marylebone to Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Leamington Spa, which are a stone’s throw from many top UK attractions.
Train tickets from London start from as little as £6, by booking in advance. If travelling in a group of between three and nine adults, you can also save 34% off the ticket price with the train operator’s GroupSave offer.
