"The Riverside Walk" Top 5 Page for this destination Stratford-upon-Avon Favorite Tip by Jenniflower

Stratford-upon-Avon General: 42 reviews and 92 photos

Favorite thing: The Riverside Walk along the River Avon is a really lovely walk to do.

It takes you along from the barge area (and the old 500 year old Compton Bridge), past The Royal Shakespeare Company, past the Rubbing Centre, up to Holy Trinity Church.

Opposit the bank we spotted a little dog had fallen into the water and thankfully his mistress was quick and managed to pull him out!

There were parents pushing their buggys, pensioners going for a walk, couples wlaking hand in hand... generally just a lovely atmosphere in which to take a walk in the fresh air.

If you feel like some coffee you can stop at the Royal Shakespeare Company cafe for a bit.

You can feed the swans and ducks... especially lovely for the kids... or just sit on a bench and watch the poeple, boats and barges, walk and sail by.
