River Avon
Winding its way through the Warwickshire countryside in England’s West Midlands, the River Avon is perhaps best known for its namesake town, Stratford-upon-Avon, famously the birthplace of William Shakespeare. The scenic river passes through the heart of the medieval town and boat tours offer a new perspective for visitors, passing waterfront landmarks like the
Royal Shakespeare Theatre, the Swan Theatre, Holy Trinity Church and Lucy’s Mill Wier.

As well as being the lifeblood of Stratford-Upon-Avon, the River Avon is well connected to England’s waterways, joining the River Severn at Tewkesbury and linked via the Stratford-Upon-Avon canal to Birmingham. 

Practical Info

The River Avon runs for 85 miles (137 km) from Naseby in Northamptonshire to join the River Severn at Tewkesbury.

Learn English and explore Stratford-Upon-Avon

star-5
Stratford-Upon-Avon is a market town packed full of history and beautiful English countryside. We'll take a stroll through the town stopping at key sites for photos before heading to the scenic 'Greenway' where you'll see English countryside at its best. We'll then head to one of my favourite English cafes for a hot drink and a continuation of the class where you'll get to ask any questions and review what you've learnt!

Bath And Lacock Village (Private Full Day Excursion from London)

Bath And Lacock Village (Private Full Day Excursion from London)

Rural Wiltshire countryside is the place to park your wheeled vehicle and walk under big blue skies until your legs groan for mercy. But your heart will say, ’go on’. In the historic village of Lacock, you step back into the past, share notes with a 200-year old local…literally everything is unchanged. Stone houses, medieval barn, village church, Abbey and The George Pub… frozen in time. Any Harry Potter fans? Lap up the movie location sites in these rickety old lanes. Ditto Downton Abbey, Pride and Prejudice movie buffs. One good thing leads to another. The city of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, does justice to its immodest description…’a drop of golden honey in a sea of green’. The walking tour is your best bet to ogle shamelessly at the best Georgian architecture in all of Britain, including the Gothic Abbey and ancient Roman Baths. This stop would easily bag the showstopper title of your entire trip. The Somerset countryside is a stone’s throw away, but that is another story.

Stand-up Paddleboard SUP Safari on The River Avon For Beginners

Stand-up Paddleboard SUP Safari on The River Avon For Beginners

star-5
We really are very lucky here; the River Avon is a slow, winding, dreamy escape of a river that meanders away from roads, towns and the noise of civilisation into a quiet wilderness full of creatures large and small. I quite regularly see deers swimming in the river during the Summer and Red Kites are starting to shadow us as we paddle along too! This is way more than just your average 'learn to SUP' session, this is a complete experience giving you the skills to escape into nature safely on a paddleboard so you can explore these natural spaces from the unique perspective of walking on water! "James made this the most chilled out and gorgeous experience. Tranquillity, clear and calm instruction, we did a great paddle from Eckington bridge and it included everything you could want from this trip; peace, giggles, wildlife, learning a new skill, stunning views and more."
