Take a look at our Shakespeare and Shopping Offer

Main Image















2016 marks 400 years since William Shakespeare’s death. We've launched a special offer to honour the world-famous Midlander. 

Our Shakespeare & Shopping package gives you:

  • The choice of a 5* or 4* serviced apartment in Birmingham (where the Shakespeare Memorial Library is found)

  • A bottle of champagne chilling on arrival, so you can raise a glass to Will Shakespeare

  • Free return train tickets to Stratford-upon-Avon

Birmingham has a range of fascinating sites for Shakespeare fans, with the Shakespeare Memorial Library a particularly fine example. A unique Elizabethan-style room, it was recently rebuilt at the very top of the ultra-modern Birmingham Library to offer visitors access to more than 44,000 books as part of the Shakespeare Collection. It also contains a 1623 copy of the first folio and fascinating Shakespeare memorabilia such as posters, theatre programmes and illustrations.

Staying Cool’s central location makes it the perfect base for enjoying all the culture that Birmingham has to offer in combination with a day trip to Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon. Stratford can be reached in under 45 minutes by train from Birmingham. Additionally, Staying Cool's guests have luxe shops such as Armani, Selfridges, Louis Vuitton and Harvey Nichols a short walk away and a huge number of high-street brands on the doorstep at The Bullring, for when they’ve had their fill of all things Shakespearean.

Shakespeare and Shopping can be booked via our website at stayingcool.com using the code SHAKESPEARE.  The offer is available until April 30th,2016.
