Some of the town walk guides

Stratford Town Walk was established in 2002 to provide a daily guided walking tour in Stratford upon Avon. A few months later, due to customer demand, an evening Ghost Walk was provided, followed by Ghost Cruises and Stratford/Shakespeare cruises on the river Avon.

In 2006 Stratford Town Walk won the prestigious Godiva Award for Best Visitor Attraction.

The town walk around historic Stratford upon Avon operates 365 days a year, whatever the weather and each guide delivers the walk in their own particular style. It is the ideal way to explore Stratford, its history, attractions, and fascinating relationship with William Shakespeare.

As you walk in Shakespeare's footsteps through the historic town see the Shakespeare Houses, Grammar School, Royal Shakespeare Theatres, Holy Trinity Church, timber framed buildings and much more. Hear informative and interesting stories of fires, the plague, medieval cures, old fashioned sayings and history of the town. Discover favourite tea houses, pubs, shops and restaurants. Don't forget your camera!

There is no need to book, just turn up on Waterside, opposite Sheep street, near the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Mon, Tue & Wed at 11am. Thu, Fri, Sat & Sun at 2pm. Christmas Day at 10.30am! The walk is wheelchair friendly and dogs are welcome. Duration up to 2hrs.

Adults £5, students & over 65's £4, children (under 16) £2. Customers are given a ticket with 5 tear-off vouchers to save money in Stratford at specially selected shops, restaurants, pubs, coffee shops and attractions - including all 5 Shakespeare Houses, the Butterfly Farm and Bancroft Cruisers.

Stratford Town Walk Guides are available for private bespoke walks, group walks, and to join coach parties for panoramic tours of Stratford or the Cotswolds. Stops for refreshments, visiting attractions or shopping can be arranged. For more information about Stratford Town Walk, visit:
