A market town synonymous with Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon has been voted "Best Small Town in the World" to visit. Located in the heart of the English countryside close to the famous Cotswolds, the birthplace of England’s greatest poet, William Shakespeare, home to the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and a Tourism industry as a major employer; Stratford-upon-Avon attracts visitors and literary pilgrims from the UK and all around the world. The OHC English centre in Stratford-upon-Avon occupies a quiet building with a large garden, situated beside the beautiful river Avon and just 5 minutes’ walk over the medieval stone bridge from the centre of the town with its drama theatres, shops, cafes, bars and riverside gardens. As Stratford is a small town, all our carefully-selected homestay accommodation is within easy walking distance of the college. The centre itself has a friendly, informal atmosphere where students find it easy to make friends and to relax and concentrate on their English studies.
