Stratford.co.uk is the latest website to be launched by Styles Creative. The website is a one stop shop for potential visitors to the picturesque Midlands town, and it is full of information about tourist spots, eateries, hotels and events. Designed to reflect the town’s heritage and cultural significance, the website also focuses attention on Stratford-upon-Avon as a vibrant and expanding commercial centre.
The website’s content is divided into easy to follow sections. The Things To Do pages highlight all of the key attractions, such as the world-famous theatrerun by the RSC, and the Shakespeare houses – all tourist attractions of international renown – plus many less well-known destinations which are nevertheless worthy of greater recognition, such as the MAD automata museum and the Butterfly Farm.
There are pages devoted to local restaurants, bars and hotels – giving visitors all of information they will need to make informed choices about where they will spend their time and money when they visit Stratford. An Events section highlights the yearly festivals and public occasions that help to make Stratford such a vibrant town. Plus, for details on how to get to, and how to get around, Stratford, there is a handy Travel Guide section. The website also has shopping pages, in which it is planned that many small local businesses will be listed alongside the nationally recognised high street chains.
Throughout its content, Stratford.co.uk seeks to represent both sides of the town: a beautiful location with a treasured cultural heritage, and a thriving and emerging economy, capable of providing an excellent return on investment.
The overall design of the website is clean and simple, but aesthetically appealing. As befits a Styles Creative project, the layout is consistent and the navigation is very easy to use. The intention is for Stratford.co.uk to be unbiased and unobtrusive in its presentation and to bring the town’s tourist attractions and local companies to the fore.
From its inception, the project has felt close to everyone on the Styles Creative team’s hearts. As a local company, based close to the centre of Stratford upon Avon, we are proud to present our hometown in this way, and sincerely hope that www.Stratford.co.uk will play its part in attracting visitors and investment to the town.
