butterfly farm is nice - would recommend bringing a picnic and eating it on the vast bands of the river Avon. Alternatively, there is a pub/restaurant called "The Boathouse" I think or The Encore is directly opposite the River on the townside. Hope you have a lovely day

Go over the river on the chain ferry if it's running - kids will be fascinated by watching it being wound across. And if it's nice, and they're well behaved you can sit outside the Dirty Duck/Black Swan which has a nice terrace (just by the ferry). Look out for the Ragdoll shop - with Teletubbies/Rosie & Jim (including a narrowboat) inside. Costs nothing to go in and the kids will love it.
