Earlier this same day, on our way to Stratford, we made a quick stop at Blenheim Palace, home of the Duke of Marlborough. There we had lunch and had time to explore the beautiful grounds. Though it was a blustery, chilly day, we had fun burning off some energy while wandering around outside the gorgeous palace.
Oh, and I almost forgot. At the beginning of this same amazing day, we visited J.R.R. Tolkien’s grave. Yup. 🙂
As a perfect end to a perfect day, I had some of the most amazing fish + chips of my life at a restaurant in Stratford called Loxley’s, accompanied by a delicious rose wine and followed by a divinely delicious brownie + ice cream dessert. I still can’t believe it, but I ate every bite of it all. And I even got to dine with Shakespeare.
