Train fare is £20 in advance, £25 on the day but you are strongly advised to book in advance.

You want Train A and Train D, Standard Tickets. If you're joining at Moor St or Tyseley, let us know and we'll try to save you a seat with the rest of us.

You don't have to stick to the above schedule - drop in and out as you want - lots to see and do in Stratford.

Alternatively travel by normal scheduled trains. Only £7.40 Return from Snow Hill or £7.20 from Moor St. Meet just outside the Main Entrance at Stratford Railway Station or at the first pub.

10:26 Depart Snow Hill (3 minutes before the Steam Train)
11:15 Arrive Stratford (19 minutes before Steam Train)
16:29 Leave Stratford (16 minutes after Steam Train)
17:17 Arrive Snow Hill (3 minutes after Steam Train)

The New Bulls Head is tucked away in the narrow back streets of Stratford Old Town. Great Beer Garden.

The Windmill has been an Inn since 1599 and is said to be the oldest pub in Stratford. Good value for Sunday Lunch.

The Dirty Duck is one of Stratfords most famous pubs. River view from the front terrace. Frequented by luvvies from the theatre apparently.

The Lamplighters has recently had a refurb and is getting good reviews.

The Old Thatch Tavern may be a bit touristy. Sells Fullers. Comfortingly close to the station (last year we caught the train with seconds to spare).

We ran this event last year and it was a hoot! Slightly different pubs this time and one more of them!

    Don't forget to get your tickets for the Steam Train! They might sell out and they are an extra £5 on the day. You can of course go on the scheduled service and you can do what you want when you get there. Pete :-)
