I went on a long weekend’s holiday to Stratford upon Avon. I didn’t take the boat with me but still ended up spending half the time on the canal.
Bought a tasty burger from this boat:
Got an ice cream from here:
And took the ferry across the canal. The old chain ferry was built in 1937 and was the last of its type to be used in Britain. A chain lies at the bottom of the canal and it’s hand-cranked by the ferryman. All in all I was very impressed by the way Stratford’s turned its waterside into a busy, attractive and interesting place to visit.
