If you are in the center of Ware it is really recommended to take a nce walk along the River Lea which is famous for the gazeboz overlooking the area. If you are lucky you might see a houseboat pass through the lock.

Yes and the River Lea also has two large barges that you can have either a fish and chip supper or afternoon tea etc. Well worth a go.
