Full of atmosphere especially on a sunny day - lots of boat trips and lovely walks. Our boat trip was £5.50 per adult and it was well worth it.... beautiful!

“A relief from the hustle bustle of Stratford town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

As a Stratford resident, I m sometimes looking to get away from it all. It s become one of my favourite jaunts to take the train to Wilmcote and walk or ride my bike all the way home along the canal path which is generally in very good condition along this flight of thirteen locks.

At the Wilmcote end is Mary Arden s farm, a nice little museum with a good coffee shop, and there are other good restaurants and pubs nearby. A nice few hours out.

“Beautiful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

If you're well equiped for the British summer, a walk along the canal is a must. Plenty to do and see along the way. Plenty of ploaces or childrena d dogs to run around, plud/restaurants and cages, as well as art displays and other local businesses.

Lovely 45min cruise on the canal leaving from the holiday inn dock, we had a very informative guide who made the cruise very interesting. Saw some beautiful river side property's which we can only dream about lol. Would recommend anyone to have a visit.
