“Boat Trip along the Canal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We visited Stratford upon Avon on Saturday as a part of a weekend coach tour and one of the delights was a boat trip along the canal. The weather was sunny but cold but it was so peaceful to travel this way and I was amazed at the amount of swans we saw

Took a trip along the canal - was pleasent way to take the weight off the feet when you've done enough walking and have a drink en route.

“Wonderful walk and flat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Walked about three miles along the canal and you get to see unexpected views of buildings as well as countryside. It was interesting to see the many locks and to get to talk to some of the people on their narrowboats as they waited to get through the locks. A little further out there is countryside dressed at the moment in stunning autumnal colours and everywhere ducks, swans and various other species of birds. It is quiet and peaceful and other walkers speak and pass the time of day. Very enjoyable.

“Lovely canal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Spent two lovely weeks on the Stratford-upon-avon canal and the Birmingham and Worcester canal. The Stratford canal was gorgeous and peaceful, with several delightful pubs and restaurants along the way.
