The River Avon, with its consistently attractive views and waterside gardens, theatre and church, is one of the strengths of Stratford, so take advantage of it and walk its banks.

We did this walk from the footbridge near the boatclub and followed the river as far as the old railway bridge near the racecourse where we crossed over and walked back.

An enjoyable trip but it was an extremely hot day and as it is slow going through the locks and travelling along the river we felt uncomfortable behind the glass. We shall do it again in the Autumn or spring.

A lovely walk along the River Avon, easy going as its on a level however can get a bit muddy in places. Well worth a little jaunt after a big meal! Wear the kids out - always a bonus!
