"Shakespeare's Local"

Built in 1599 and becoming an alehouse a year later, this hostelry holds the longest unbroken line of licensees of any in Stratford. Today, the Windmill presents a combination of the past and present. Old wooden flooring and exposed beams give the building a sense of permanence, while modern entertainment facilities in the form of music and a TV area are also on offer. There are some interesting old photographs on display here, including one taken on the 8th of March 1926 that shows the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in flames, alongside a press-cutting that describes the disaster.
