Great way to see the Avon River is to take a punt ride. Good value for a 30 minute trip and shows you a different side of the Botanical Gardens. Very relaxing seeing the plants, trees and wildlife.

Whether you choose to walk or ride in a punt, the Avon is a lovely tranquil place to visit. The Willows hanging over the river reminded me of England.

I walked along the banks of the Avon, and was delighted to see folk still punting on the river. There is a very English feel to the river environs, in spite of the obvious damage to nearby houses. A shady respite with birdlife frequenting the river itself. It retains a peaceful English feel even though the bridges are damaged somewhat in the city.
