(100 reviews on the web)
Four times a day, Stratford Clock Tower charms Stratfod with a short show featuring a glockenspiel and mechanical figurines of characters from William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet." Accompanying the music of the glockenspiel (housed within the tower and the only one of its kind in the country), the figures play out scenes in the window near the base of the tower.
