Try to make time to hear the chimes in this clock tower located most convenient to a public toilet and THE information centre.

I'd read various brochures about this so we rushed to get there for the 7pm after arriving in Stratford. Takes 5 minutes, was entertaining, a scene from Romeo and Juliet, an unexpected delight.
