Every love story is beautiful
Congratulations on your engagement and consideration for celebrating your special day here at The White Swan.
A truly historic hotel, The White Swan's building has been dated back to 1450. It was used as an inn as early as 1560, when it was known as the King's House or Hall. It was owned by Robert Perrott, a brewer, and kept by his brother, William.
Roberts’s granddaughter Susanne Woodward married a young officer caller Richard Tyler in 1588. Richard was one of William Shakespeare’s boyhood friends, therefore it is likely that William Shakespeare and the young married couple would have drunk many a drink in the newly decorated tavern.
Richard Tyler already had a passion for ales since his father William Tyler was appointed Ale Taster for the borough in 1557. This role would presumably have been responsible for certifying the quality of licensed ales.
Make a special occasion even more memorable by hosting it in the historical surroundings of the White Swan. Our Capulet and Montague rooms are some of the most stylish function rooms in Stratford-upon-Avon.
