What people are saying...
"I loved the walks - did them on my own, as I had a weekend to myself. I expected lots to do with Shakespeare (which there was!) but hadn't expected the really unusual canal, which is tucked away so it's difficult to see - but very interesting. Brilliant, thanks."

Stratford-Upon-Avon Weather?

Stratford-Upon-Avon

Curious AboutStratford-Upon-Avon is a beautiful olde-worlde town with timber-framed buildings and large open spaces. Sitting in the middle are the world-famous Royal Shakespeare and Swan theatres, homages to the poet and playwright William Shakespeare who was born, baptised and buried in Stratford. The theatres in turn overlook the gorgeous River Avon which wends its way gently through the town, bounded by parks and gardens, and fed by a busy canal. See the 16th century school which Shakespeare is said to have attended, a variety of museums, and the Old Town where time has stood still for many a year.
Take our fabulous walks of discovery, and have fun finding answers to clues which tell you more, whilst reading our stories about the most interesting facts.

First Walk
Wheelchair friendlyChildren's University
Town and Canal

From the modern, bustling Bancroft Gardens you soon enter the leisurely world of long boats and locks - a hidden treasure in the heart of Stratford. From here it’s back to an ancient street, home to Shakespeare’s birthplace and carefree tourists. Via some lesser-known streets packed with interest, you will pass yet more heritage, before arriving back in front of Stratford’s most imposing theatre
(1.3 miles / 2.1 kms).
Second Walk
Wheelchair friendlyChildren's University
Old Town

From Stratford’s Royal Shakespeare Theatre, walk alongside the River Avon a while, before moving into the Old Town. Here it’s quieter, giving you time to soak up the atmosphere of an ancient place. Visit some Memorial Gardens and a park which was once home to a Saxon monastery. Finally you arrive at Holy Trinity Church, Shakespeare’s last resting place, alongside the beautiful, and peaceful River Avon
(1 mile / 1.6 kms).
