Bancroft Gardens & Recreation Ground

Waterside Stratford-Upon-Avon Warwickshire CV376BB

Running along the south side the river Avon and sandwiched between the RSC Theatre and the canal basin, a stroll or a picnic in Bancroft Gardens is at the heart of any Stratford visit, and indeed over a million visitors a year come here to sit and watch the world go by, listen to buskers or watch street entertainers. A statue of Shakespeare presides over a series of figures depicting some of the Bard's most famous characters – Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, Falstaff and Prince Hals – respectively symbolising philosophy, tragedy, comedy and history, and deckchairs are available for hire during summer months. You'll also find a small (and somewhat tired) crazy golf course and a number of football posts for those looking to burn off some surplus energy.
