    Sight seeing.

    by Steve-H Updated Oct 29, 2003

    Favorite thing: The Bulldog Bash takes place every August at the York Raceway, Long Marston just a few miles past Stratford Upon Avon. Stratford is worth a visit, famous as the birthplace of William Shakespeare it isnt as tacky as most tourist traps and has plenty of good pubs too.
    Here i am with Trish the singer with the Playgirls outside Shakespeares house, he wasn`t in.

    Riverside Park

    by tvor Written Jul 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Old Buildings

    by barryg23 Updated Feb 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Stratford has a very old world feel to it and I liked the way most of the shops and buildings have retained their original look. The architecture and look of Barclays Bank (pictured), Pizza Hut, Cafe Costa and other businesses fitted in nicely with the more historic buildings in the town.

    Shakespeare

    by barryg23 Updated Feb 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon and spent the early and late parts of his life here. The Shakespeare Birthplace trust have restored his birthplace, and the homes of his mother, wife, and daughter and these are now all musuems open to the public. The birthpalce is probably the most interesting - primarily as it is adjacent to the excellent visitor centre.

    River Avon Walk - part 5

    by yooperprof Written Sep 6, 2009

    Favorite thing: The Stratford Steeplechase Course lies on the north side of the river. The horsies weren't out on the day that I was there, but they must be fun to watch when they are running!

    Boat-Upon-Avon

    by goglobe Written Nov 1, 2003

    Favorite thing: Here are longish Thames motor boats on the Avon, which are mainly for river tours, another touristic attraction perhaps.

    I would rather walk along the Avon

    More Inns

    by goglobe Written Nov 1, 2003

    Favorite thing: Here's the Garrick Inn, on some literary trail I would say. The black white timbering is typical, but not similar to the Chester buildings by and by.

    The Winter's Tale

    by barryg23 Updated Feb 18, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: We saw an interesting production of Shakespeare's 'The Winter's Tale' at the RSC theatre. The setting was changed to 1950's America, yet still retained the original characters, plot and dialogue.
