“River of tranquility.”
Review of River Avon

Reviewed 2 June 2016

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.

What a nice time my sisters and I had walking along the River Avon within walking distance from the Market Square, Citi Centre, passing lots of river boats, people with children and lots of good places to eat at. We got to meet some really fine people as well that were willing to share a bit of history with us. Love to come back and go for a boat ride.

Lovely park for any age and just a few steps from the town centre. I was sad that the whale bone had been removed for safety reasons having taken children and then years later grandchildren to see it.

A walk by the river Avon is rather special. Watch the canal boats and chat with their owners. Take a boat ride or row yourself. Beautiful swans. Lovely riverside restaurant.various festivals through the summer. Well worth a visit.
