It's just a lovely area to walk, cycle, it's safe, not too crowded. We walked quite a long way and it was a warm day. It makes a change from the crowded touristy parts of Stratford

Walked along part of this as part of a circular walk, plenty of good views, the best grandstand seating for the racecourse! It is also dry whilst all around is flooded.

This is the a hidden gem that few tourists or locals even ever take advantage of. If you want a safe route you can use in all weathers this is it. It is an idiot proof "there and back" route on an old railway line. Many local runners use in bad weather as it is flat, well maintained and puddles,... More

Shakespeare's relatives owned farms, and land; and he knew and wandered the land around the village of Stratford. The Greenway is a wonderful opportunity to get of out of the tourist lane, and walk through some of the fields, along some of the streams and trees, that gave the young Will much joy. The railway carriage sandwich shop is pleasant,... More

Lovely walk/ run / bike on flat and friendly terrain. Lots of bird life and scenery. The route away from Stratford starting at Milcote is much quieter and the scenery at Long Marston very pretty.

walked along the Avon to the bike rental station ( an old train) and rented bikes to ride the Greenway. Gorgeous!! Went off the path and thru some quintessential English villages - thatched-roof houes, beautiful gardens. Fabulous

This is a good place to hire a bike and cycle along. Great for exercise and the time flies with the lovely views along here. There is also a cafe for refreshments at the Greenway.
