Flower Beds, benches, William Shakespeare memorial, walks along the river. There's a main tourist information center here that has or at least used to have the American Express office in it as well. The lamp posts along the park have whimsical sculptures of Shakespeare characters. The river has swans swimming along it and you can get a water ferry or book a riverboat cruise. There's a footbride across the water as well. Good place to get your visitor information.
The Old Thatch Tavern
The Old Thatch Tavern sits on a busy corner in the town.
It's claim to fame is that it is the only thatch roofed building left in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon.
Other houses do have thatch that we saw, but they lie just outside the town, included in this the famous Anne Hathaway cottage!
This pub looked busy inside and had a traditional and homely feel to it. We didn't get a chance to go inside it this time though. Maybe next time.
Riverside Walk past the racecourse
You can walk right along the banks of the River Avon on the side opposite the Theatre - you go through a lovely park until you reach a road bridge but can continue along past the racecourse. Presumably you may watch the racing from there but you would need to check the dates of any horse races first!
You will need slightly better shoes along this length of footpath as it gets a little rougher away from the formal paths in the park.
You could also cycle along here - all the way to Long Marston I guess.
Wellesbourne mill also features the Welsh Coracle which is an ancient small boat. It is possible to have a row in one on the millpond.
Coracles (from the Welsh "cwrwgl") can be dated back thousands of years. The Coracle was originally covered with animal skins and in some countries they are still made this way,
Wellesbourne has a number of Coracles, one of which has been built in the traditional way with animal skins.
Anne Hathaway's Cottage
My only visit there was part of a bus tour and the tour didn't include the interior of the building, just a photo stop for the gardens and a group photo in the car park out back, sadly. The building dates back to the 15th century and was owned by the Hathaway family until 1892. It has been restored to more like it's 15th C. style and is open to the public. There are some centuries old antiques and a lush garden. The cottage is actually fairly large, and was originally a farmhouse.
