“Total Chaos”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

After walking along the bank watching a myriad of craft weaving around like dodgems we decided to hire a rowboat for a reasonable £8 for thirty minutes.

Having almost landed in the water instead of the boat, I settled down to enjoy the views and allowed my other half to do the hard work. We made steady progress until we passed the RSC where we found ourselves entangled in a regatta with some fairly serious teams racing either side of us. We had much hilarity dodging motor boats with a few bumps along the way.

The half hour was up all too soon and husband being exhausted we adjourned to the RSC for a cuppa. Great fun, recommend it on a sunny day.

“I am the cygnet to this pale faint swan,”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The town's mojo. After visiting Shakespeare's birth place, there is nothing more charming than a walk by the canal and take some pictures of the Shakespearean Beautiful swans...

“Very relaxing.”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Typical river boat trip but the seats were a bit hard and small. You travel both up and down the river so you do get to see some lovely expensive back gardens along the way.
