Stratford-upon-Avon and the Heart of England Travel Guide


A brief drive out of Stratford will take you under the Stratford-upon-Avon Canal aqueduct to pretty Henley-in-Arden, whose wide main street is an architectural pageant of many periods.

Among the buildings to look for are the former Guildhall, dating from the 15th century, and
