The best places to enjoy Shakespeare's River Avon is the stretch from Evesham to Stratford, best at Evesham.
As a kid I used to come to this part of the Avon, even though we lived in Stratford. The river is wide and slow moving, especially on a summer's day, or night. There's a few water lilies on the town stretch, hiding the big, strong carp and chub from the eyes of the public. You need to be a very good angler to ever get a sight of one of these on your hook!
You can rent a rowing boat locally, and explore the quiet, secret waters of the Avon at your leisure. Or get a ride on one of the tourist boats with the others, and learn about the river and the town.
Whatever you decide to do to enjoy the Avon, do it quietly, don't disturb the tranquility of Evesham's most beautiful asset.
