Bidford on Avon is not as famous as its neighbour, Stratford, which is, of course is a popular tourist destination because of its connections to William Shakespeare. Bidford on Avon, like Stratford, has swans on the River Avon as well as half-timbered houses. It’s quieter than Stratford, but that makes it ideal for a day out away from the hustle and bustle of any tourist trap. The narrow bridge over the river is quite wide for a packhorse bridge, and was built by monks some 600 years ago. The church of Saint Laurence, is even older, as it has already marked its 800th anniversary.
