Stratford Town Walk
Arts & Culture Experience
Discover the history of Stratford-upon-Avon and its Shakespearean connections with an award-winning guide. The dedicated team deliver informative and entertaining tours so you come away with a deeper knowledge of this cultural town. The Town Walk is the most popular option which takes place every day of the year, including Christmas Day. It is perfect for first time visitors and those that are more familiar with the area. You’re sure to learn something you didn’t know before. Follow in Shakespeare’s footsteps as you pass his birthplace and his grave. You can also tick the many popular landmarks of Stratford-upon-Avon off your list as you stroll through the town. This walk is dog friendly and wheelchair accessible.
On Saturdays and at Halloween, the tours take a dark turn for a haunting Ghost Walk. These were set up due to high demand as Stratford-upon-Avon’s streets are lined with historic buildings wanting their story to be told. The guides, in their atmospheric costumes, take you back in time. They share tales of the residents of a 17th century tearoom, the Sheep Street witch and ghostly theatre visitors. If you are attending the Halloween tour, we encourage you to dress up. It is a highly renowned tour and the professional guides, some of which have a taste for magic, make each experience unique.
Private tours are available for larger groups making this a fantastic choice if you are gathering for a special occasion in the area. The friendly team are on hand to help you plan the perfect day.
Stratford-upon-Avon has so much to offer. Not only are there the many sites of Shakespearean interest but the River Avon also flows through the town. After your tour visit one of the many cafes or restaurants and take your time visiting anywhere that caught your eye during your informative walk.
Please note: The town walk is wheelchair and pushchair friendly, and dogs are welcome. You must book in advance for each tour.
