Shakespeare's Way

Follow in the footsteps of the bard as you walk on The Shakespeare’s Way from Stratford-upon-Avon to Oxford. William Shakespeare himself would have walked this trail between his birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the City of London.  

Your journey starts in Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, a medieval town sitting proudly on the banks of the river Avon. Immerse yourself in Shakespeare’s life and legacy by visiting the many sites linked to the famous poet and playwright. 

From Stratford-upon-Avon the walk heads south along the valley of the River Stour into the beautiful rolling hills of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. Sprinkled with quaint Cotswold towns of Chipping Norton and Woodstock the Cotswolds are a walkers paradise.
