The River Avon at Stratford
The Avon winds gently through the town, surrounded on both banks by green parkland and flower filled gardens. The Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church, containing Shakespeare's tomb, stand amidst the willow trees reflected in the river's shimmering water. The river flows under two fine old bridges and over the site of an ancient ford around which the town was founded. The ford gave the town its name (street–ford) but Stratford's endearing charm is to be 'upon-Avon'.
