Stratford, Warwick Castle and National Arboretum This was an excellent trip and the weather was beautiful. National Arboretum was so peaceful and enjoyed by everyone. At Stratford many people took a boat trip on the river and enjoyed lunch and a look around the town. The following day, Warwick Castle did not disappoint - a good time was had by all.
