Further Information and Other Local Ideas
Follow the Monarch's Way south from the park and it will take you into Stratford Upon Avon. There's nice river walks, the famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre and easy trails along the Stratford Upon Avon Canal to enjoy here. Head north west along the canal and you could visit the Edstone Aqueduct, the longest cast iron aqueduct in England. There's great views from the top of this significant local structure.
Heading north will take you into the village of Snitterfield where there's the Snitterfield Bushes Nature Reserve and a nice local pub with a particularly lovely garden.
