"Fortune brings in some boats that are not steered", wrote Shakespeare. However, if you're hiring a rowing boat by the hour you probably won't want to leave it to chance. Visit Avon Boating at the Swan's Nest Boathouse and you can take one out onto a three-mile stretch of the Avon in Stratford this Friday and get a whole new perspective of the town from the river.
