Here are some photos of the day:
The arrow-slit and the tower
Jacob, Elsie and me near the gates
Me standing by the castle
Then we got into the car and went to Stratford-upon-Avon, where we stopped at a cafe named after a line from one of Shakespeare's plays. After lunch we went to Shakespeare's birthplace. Here are some pictures of that:
In the kitchen
Next to the window from the birth-room where people (including some very famous people) used to sign their names in the glass
Outside the front door.
In the knot garden on the site of the house called New Place where Shakespeare lived after 1610.
Then we went home and had dinner.
This is Mum with her cake that I helped Dad to cook.
