Treat yourself and a guest to an afternoon of one of the finest of British traditions in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon, and take a relaxed sightseeing tour with this Afternoon Tea and River Cruise for Two in Historic Stratford-upon-Avon.
With its charm and contemporary styling, The Arden Hotel is perfect for an afternoon treat. You’ll be served a selection of sandwiches to start your afternoon tea, before moving on to cakes, pastries, sweets and homemade fruit scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream. There’s a selection of teas and infusions to enjoy too so you can choose your perfect food and brew pairing, the ideal accompaniment to an afternoon of tasty delights.
Hop aboard a traditional vessel for a relaxed sightseeing tour, cruise downstream past the famous Royal Shakespeare Theatre and Holy Trinity Church (the site of Shakespeare’s tomb), before turning around and passing under the 15th century Clopton Bridge. Audio tours are available for you to learn more about the sights and sounds of the Avon as you go.
On arrival at The Arden Hotel you’ll be warmly greeted by a member of staff and shown through to the lounge.
With menus in hand you can peruse the tea and infusion selection to find your ideal warming brew, and when you’ve decided you’ll be served your delicious afternoon tea on a tiered stand along with your chosen drink for an hour or two of British tradition.
The river cruise departs from moorings at Bancroft Gardens, with trips commencing at 10.30 and running every 20 to 30 minutes subsequently. Simply present your voucher to the crew from Avon Boating Ltd for entry to the cruise. Cruise downstream for 20 minutes before turning around and passing under the historic Clopton Bridge and returning to your moorings where you’ll disembark.
