Avon Boating review

After William Shakespeare, the River Avon is the main focus of things to do in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The RSC (Royal Shakespeare company theatre) sits beside the river and there are a number of places to eat and drink. Plus you can rent a rowing boat, a punt, an electric boat, canoe or motorboat. There are also guided boat tours that cruise along this stretch of water.

Avon boating offers a number of these boating options. The river cruise is very pleasant and a great chance to unwind after a busy day exploring. The cruise lasts for around 40 minutes and they have boats running every 20 minutes from March until late October.

Make sure you pick up a handheld electronic guide and a map. You press the appropriate button at the right time for an audio tour. It is very informative and will teach you lots along the way. If you don’t fancy a boat cruise with other people you can also hire out a private charter boat. The cruise boats have indoor and outdoor seating.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
