While had the rental car we found that we weren’t really that far from Stratford on Avon so we’d do a trip up there for a look around.
On the way we stopped at a neat wee town called Moreton on Marsh and also had a walk around there.
We noticed one of the pubs there was doing specials around the Sky showing of the Lions V the All Blacks so we asked if we could watch the Americas Cup as a back up plan and they were very welcoming. We managed to get our Sky Go app and internet issues sorted so it wasn’t necessary but very kind of them.
Stratford on Avon was an amazing town. It was chocker with people having fun everywhere and again some more of those lovely old buildings. These looked even older but more Thatched roofs and from basic building practices.
The Canal was busy with a couple of Narrow boats set up as Ice cream shops doing a great trade. There were canal boats parked on the river and moving in all directions along with tour boats and a larger restaurant barge left while we were there.
We had a good wander up through the shopping streets to look at some of the old buildings.
There is one house there that is said to the oldest house still lived in. Part of it has been turned into a museum. It is just great seeing all these towns and they’re all different.

As Kiwis, we just can’t get enough of all this history in England. We are enjoying tagging along with your travels, some places we have visited, others are new to us. Stay safe and happy travelling.
