Our Boat & River Avon Cruise

A unique experience awaits you in the historic town of Stratford upon Avon. Countess of Evesham is a popular, well established family run 70ft restaurant cruiser.

Operating throughout the year, the centrally heated Countess of Evesham travels down the River Avon to Luddington (and back). Whilst cruising at night, the boat lights up the river banks, creating a memorable atmosphere.
