“ A private, charter and sightseeing river cruises on the beautiful River Avon in Stratford-upon-avon. „
Bancroft Cruisers are based in Stratford Upon Avon and provide sightseeing cruises along the River Avon in the famous birthplace of William Shakespeare. The base is located next to The Holiday Inn hotel in the town centre.
The 45 minute cruise runs from 10.30am to 5.30pm daily and costs £3.50 for a child and £5.00 for an adult.
The 60 minute cruise runs from the same times and costs £4.00 for a child and £7.00 for an adult.
I have taken the 45 minute cruise on two occasions now and thoroughly enjoyed the experience each time. The cruise takes you along the beautiful and picturesque River Avon to take in the sights of the Shakespeare Theatre and the 13th Century Holy Trinity Church (which is the site of Shakespeare's tomb). You will also have the opportunity to see inside the back gardens of some very beautiful homes.
The cruiser is licensed to sell alcohol and also offer buffet and bar cruises for special occasions - even weddings!!
It is a great experience, especially on a nice bright sunny day. The staff are very knowledgeable about the surroundings and very friendly and welcoming. On both occasion the boat was on time for boarding and we sailed for 45 minutes.
I would definitely recommend this trip if you are visiting Stratford.
