Scenic Viewpoint
“Do try and get tickets to an RSC play - either at main theatre or The Swan. The Swan is slightly smaller but historically significant as created from the shell of the RSC theatre which burnt down in 1927. The RSC is a good venue for lunch with nice views across river and Stratford upon Avon”
