You can enjoy the Avon riverside at any time of year. But it is more interesting, colourful and enjoyable when the weather is warmer!

Some say you only need to be Stratford for a day. I was there for 3 days and I will go back and stay much longer.

The gorgeous weather just lured me out there along the Avon. I wasn't expecting the village to be in such a lovely setting. I'll be back.

This was everything and more of what I imagined. We have been dreaming about visiting this spot for years and it is just beautiful. It meanders past the Royal Shakespeare Company's Theatre. with a beautiful park on the banks. Just wonderful.
