    1 Stratford upon Avon By Victoria Franchini During the following hypertext, the history about Stratford upon Avon will be described; including its history, markets, tourism, and principal attractions. History Invaded by the Saxons in the 7th century, Stratford upon Avon is a small city situated along the Avon River in the region of Warwickshire, England. The name “Stratford upon Avon” comes from the Saxons and Celts, which means “the area where a road crosses a   river”. The city of Stratford has only 30,000 inhabitants.   Map  Markets   Richard I changed the economy of this village in the 12th century, when he granted the right of weekly markets. At the time, people wished to exchange their products for things they could not make for themselves and depends almost entirely on other towns. As a result, places such as Stratford-upon-Avon had fairs and a market. Stratford was a very well-placed town to serve as a market centre, due to the importance of the River Avon that lead Stratford become an important market town, where people from different surrounding shires could go to buy goods.   In 1819 George III changed “the Charter Market” to a Friday, as Thursday was the srcinal day. This change was done in order to avoid competition with other market towns. Despite modern times,  these markets can still be found in Stratford for tourists to buy local crafts. Tourism   According to the city's tourism, Stratford brings abroad around 3 million people every year. This is because it is William Shakespeare's birth town. The dramatist play writer was born in Stratford in April 23rd, 1564. He was the son of Mary Arden and John Shakespeare, and they lived together in a house in Hanley Street. By the year 1582 he married Anne Hathaway, but in 1592 he left Stratford to reach London and become an actor and dramatist. He wrote at least 37 plays including comedies and tragedies, and many of these were very successful at court, in the public playhouses and theatres. The most popular plays are “Othello”, “Hamlet”, “Romeo and Juliet” and “ King Lear ”. In 1613, Shakespeare retired from the theatre and returned to Stratford, where he died in 1616. Attractions   As it is a very small city known after William Shakespeare death, all the attractions of Stratford have to do with the dramatist's life.    2 The architecture remains from the 16 th  century all over the city, so important buildings can still be found exactly the same from Shakespeare's time, such as  Shakespeare’s House  and Holy Trinity Church (were Shakespeare was baptized and buried).
