A quick 15-minute walk or 5-minute cycle along the picturesque river bank and you will find yourself at the heart of the historic Stratford-upon-Avon surrounded by all the shops and amenities you could possibly need.

Perhaps you fancy packing a picnic for a day out on your canal boat or you are feeling a little peckish as you sail down the River Avon. Shakespeare Marina is a handy 10-minute walk away from the nearby Waitrose where there is also a pharmacy and a golden royal mail post box. If you fancy a slightly longer walk past the green fields and over the Rush Brook, then you’ll also find a local Co-op or a large Tesco superstore just outside of town.

Supporting local, independent businesses has been vital over the past year and so we are pleased that on the first and third Saturday of each month the Stratford Farmer’s Market at Rother Street marketplace takes place. From embracing the idyllic setting of Stratford-upon-Avon to supporting the local community, there is lots of fresh and organic produce grown within 30 miles of the town.

We always love speaking with the local farmers and getting to know their story, so we would encourage you to do the same to. Shakespeare Marina is perfectly placed for boating enthusiasts requiring sustenance providing effortless access to essential shops and supermarkets so that everything you need is within an easy reach.
