    They are Off

    Stratford hosts a small Horse Racing track.

    All races are over fences.

    It is an interesting sporting day our in the summer

    Horseracing has been at Stratford since before 1755.

    So if you fancy a traditional English day out a day at the races is recommended

    The weather was a tad chilly for us to go rowing along the River Avon when we were there in early spring, but were it warmer, we would have definately done it!

    There are a number of places you can hire a boat from, a favourite being Avon Boating.

    You can hire self drive motor boats, go on cruises on the river Avon, go on electric boats and motor boats, go on vintage passenger launches, rowing, punting and canoeing!

    Whatever you prefer, do try to do one of these. We went on a barge cruise ourself and thoroughly enjoyed it :)

    Stratford Races

    by DUNK67 Updated Sep 28, 2004

    National Hunt Horseracing takes place at Stratford Racecourse several times a year.

    The course is fairly flat so visibilaty is good virtually all around the track. There are some small grandstands for shelter and a more elevated view point.

    Equipment: A pair of binoculars would be handy to see the horses on the far side of the course although there is a large screen to watch the action.
    It is a good idea to buy a racecard before the meeting starts to see what horses are running and their previous form. They are generally available for about £1.
