Been walking the Greenway for several months and never get bored. Beautiful sunny day like it was today makes it a even more of a pleasure. Nice flat terrain makes walking easy although cycle enthusiasts also use the Greenway. Parents with younger children will find the walk safe for their kids to enjoy no motor traffic or fumes to contend... More

I cycle along the greenway. On a mountain bike it's fine but on a road bike it can be pretty bumpy! Never the less it's a lovely place to ride and what a great idea to use the old railway line : ) There are a couple of cafés along the way, both of them making use of old railway... More

What a lovely walk along an old railway line. Very clean,pleasant walkway. You can go as far as you like with wonderful views across the racecourse and river avon. Friendly passers by amble at your own pace. Coffee at the rail carriage was a pleasant surprise as my spouse is a train enthusiasts. No hurry ,no worries, peaceful.

Local cafe in two parts on the greenway, great idea to use an old train as this was an old railway but it doesn't look too clean the stairs look rotten and the service depends on the staff working. Excellent stop off from a walk good out of the rain position but nothing to blow you away with the food,... More

I was surprised to find somewhere to run away from the traffic. This trail along an old railway track passes through fine country and connects to the paths along the river Avon!

We rented two mountain bikes from the Stratford Bike Hire which was a short walk from the free car park. We paid £10 each for half-a-day. Helmets were provided. The bikes were acceptable for this ride although mine needed a new bottom-bracket as pressure on the pedals made a crunching noise and feel. A round trip was suppose to be... More

On Saturday 12th July 2014 I decided to cycle along The Greenway, however beautiful, quiet and safe the route is, the park authorities have decided to attempt to fill in some very small dips on the route, but they have used rough large hardcore. As a result this has made cycling on the route very dangerous in some areas. I... More

We took or bikes for a ride along the Greenway and it has some lovely scenery but it was quite uneven in places where the ground had been repaired/filled in with rubble. We also found it quite difficult to negotiate the number of 'kissing gates' along the way with the bikes, but other than this it was a nice route.

We live locally but having just moved to the area this was our first trip to the greenway. Parking at the stratford end was easy and free. We wanted to hire bikes from the stratford bike hire place located in the railway carriage. This was a nightmare - nobody there on arrival (no mention of it on website but you... More

Free parking. Closing time seems to be linked to hours of darkness during the year. Work that out for yourselves. Very pleasant walk through the countryside on ex railway line. Good quality hardcore path for cycling. Various offshoot routes through fields by the river more rustic and unprepared pathway.
