Well have arrived in Stratford upon Avon in the basin adjacent to Bancroft Gardens. The town centre is just across the basin from the moorings making it easy to visit the many interesting sites along with the thousands of tourists from all over the world. I think the only other place I have heard so many different languages was London. Be warned fellow boaters that to moor here so close to everything has a price and below are pictured 3 tourists taking pictures so i got my own back and snapped them. This goes on all day long with party`s of up to 30 led by a guide and they also stand in the front deck to have their photo taken if the boat has no one aboard.
Still it`s a small price to pay for a visit to Stratford and at least the next mooring can if you wish be in a nice remote piece of countryside.
While here I had a w`end visit from 2 of the g`children with mum&dad and we visited the Butterfly farm and a ride on the chain ferry across the Avon but that will be on the next blog so in the meantime click on the photo album below and have a look around Stratford upon Avon.

Loved the pictures and music,it does really give a sense of the place.I do feel sometimes it is a shame that the historic and picturesque areas are spoilt by the accouterments of modern life.

Hi Grey wolf
Yes i do agree but we have to be thankfull that there are systems in place to preserve some of our history. Many places i`ve visited have managed to blend the new with the old.
Canalside history is fast disapearing but so much is still there if you take time to find it which is what i enjoy most.
