Take a relaxing boat ride along the River Avon

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire

Enjoy the tranquil waters of the River Avon by boat, as many have been doing for over 100 years.

Hire a boat with one of the area’s traditional boating companies, and set sail on one of the finest rivers in the country.

For those wanting to explore the further reaches of the river, you can also hire a rowing boat, punt or self-drive motor boat and be on your way.

However, if you’re not one for making your own way along the river, climb aboard a classic Edwardian passenger vessel for a public cruise, which will take you from the Bancroft Gardens and past the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
