Favorite thing: The Clopton Bridge is the main traversal of the River Avon in central Stratford. It is also officially a "Scheduled Ancient Monument" in Britain!

It was originally built in 1480, financed by a certain Hugh Clopton of nearby Clopton House, a leading gentry-man who later served as Lord Mayor of London. Its 14 spans now carry the A3400 across the river.
