Our walks are set both around the town and further out into the neighbouring countryside, making use of riverside walks using  The Greenway.   Some of the walks are circular walks and you may even pick up guided walks in Stratford-upon-Avon, please enquire for details at the Tourist Information Centre.
The walks are graded in terms of difficulty with estimated completion time given, enabling you to select the walk to suit you and the time you have available.
