No complaints about York from this traveler. I enjoyed a rather quiet and comfortable night of sleep in my huge single room. The TV actually picked up more than one station too. Nice big bathroom and a refreshing shower. Breakfast was pretty darn nice too: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, roasted tomato and baked beans served from a buffet line. We also had a nice choice of juices. Too bad we could only stay one night.
It was going to be a rather lengthy ride to our main stop of the day, Stratford-upon-Avon, the home of William Shakespeare. James put British comedy DVD on the bus entertainment system. It was mildly funny in a very English way, but it was no Benny Hill or Monty Python.
We arrived in Stratford just after noon. First stop on the day's agenda would be the home of Anne Hathaway. This would be my fourth visit. Amazingly enough, each time I've been through the house I've learned something new.
Tonight's hotel would be the Swallow Hotel
(now called the "Nightingale") in Swindon.
