Not long after arriving at Stratford-upon-Avon station, you can be in the heart of the town made famous as Shakespeare's birthplace. Walking east on Alcester Road, it's just 10 minutes to the striking half-timber architecture of the town centre, and the inviting riverside gardens. A few minutes more and you reach the theatres and the nearby Holy Trinity Church – Shakespeare's final resting place. Stratford-upon-Avon station first opened in 1861. It was once a stop on the Great Western Railway from Birmingham to Cheltenham, but has been a terminus since 1976. Direct trains to Stratford-upon-Avon from London Marylebone run via Leamington Spa on the Chiltern Main Line, and there are two trains an hour from Birmingham. Passenger numbers at the station have been eased by the opening of Stratford-upon-Avon Parkway to the north of the town, which mainly serves longer distance passengers and commuters who no longer have to travel into the centre to catch a train.
