Stratford-upon-Avon Self-Guided City Walk

Stratford-upon-Avon is the home of the great English playwright William Shakespeare. Though first settled in the 7th century, it was officially founded in 1196 when King Richard I granted it a market charter.

The walk will take you past many of the locations where Shakespeare spent his formative years including the house where he was born, the church he was baptised and buried in, where he went to school, and the site where he spent the last part of his life.

But there is more to the town than Shakespeare, so while you are there visit some medieval pubs, quirky museums and a beautiful river.

Walk Distance 3km / 2 miles mostly flat.
