Martin Peters, Chief Executive of Leicestershire Promotions said: “Together with Shakespeare’s England, we developed and launched a family short break in Warwickshire and Stratford-Upon-Avon in 2017 that has proven to be very popular. Given the fabulous offering that the destination has for adults as well as children, the couples break was an obvious option and we’ve worked with some great accommodation and attraction partners to make it happen.”

Helen Peters, Chief Executive for Shakespeare's England, added: “It was important to us that there was an offering aimed at couples as well as our family short break experiences to bring more couples to experience everything that the region has to offer. They can now enjoy a romantic weekend away with plenty of activities to keep them entertained and the perfect accommodation for a wonderful visit to the area.”
