Plenty of waterfowl, great views across the river, easy access to pubs such as the Dirty Duck, and the theatres of course.

One of the many pleasant riverside places to walk in Stratford and a lovely tranquil link between the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the church where the great man is buried.

A nice ramble along the side of the avon, worth following to see parts of the town that not everyone gets to, but would benefit from sign-posting showing the walk.
