Ancient market town
Ancient market town of Stratford-upon-Avon is synonymous with William Shakespeare. There are many more historic facts and figures and just by walking through the town you can discover so much more. Stratford upon Avon is a beautiful town and it is amazing to think that it was set out as a new town in 1196, on a medieval grid system. This is why the streets are straight and why it is easy to find your way around. And even though some of the shops are modern, always look up from time to time and you will find wavy roofs, terracotta dragons on roofs, odd little windows and lots of black and white buildings - painted black and white by the Victorians because they thought it looked neater.
Take an easy stroll along both sides of the River Avon in Stratford. From the East side of the river you will get outstanding views of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, boating activities and slightly further down river you will be able to see Holy Trinity Church, where William Shakespeare is buried.
Riverside Walk is a pleasant, way marked 3½ mile (5½ km) walk linking Leamington and Warwick. Along the way there are cafeteria facilities and toilets at Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre, Jephson Gardens, the Royal Pump Rooms, Victoria Park and St Nicholas Park
