Where to stay in Stratford

Whether you stay north or south of the Avon River, you'll be within walking distance of the city's top attractions. Stay in the historic center, just near Veterans Drive Parkland, if you're happy to pay a bit more for a charming, friendly guesthouse or inn housed in a period building. Reserve well in advance if visiting between May and September, as the warmer months bring an influx of tourists to the small city.
