This former railway line offers a 5 mile flat and pleasant scenic track ideal for walkers and cyclists. You can begin at either end which has ample parking. Refreshments are available at a converted railway carriage. I've both walked and cycled along the track and think it's best in the summer. A bell on your bike is recommended.

Great motivation when walking or cycling with kids to aim for carriage cafe for an ice cream or drink. Always friendly, although quite basic inside.

Parking available. Very enjoyable walk from the edge of Stratford into the countryside. Great for safe family cycling/walking. Enjoyed snack and coffee in the converted railway carriage.

My two girls and I along with our pooch walked for a few miles from the Stratford car park to the first road crossing where there is a second railway cafe - and back. Dog kept on lead throughout as not fully trained - to be respectful of other path users including cyclists. Mid December, dry day, cold and sunny.... More

Good for walking dogs but not many people pick up their litter so i was very putt off. Good long walk if you have a dog that needs a long walk

A great place to bring the kids as you can incentivise them to cycle back and get an ice cream from carriages cafe. Ideal safe place for them to pedal about . I tend to stop short of the sewage farm though in the hot weather...

I regularly walk along the stratford Greenway with my dog. It is an extremely safe place to let your dog off the lead and run for a 10 mile round trip. Equally have cycled and jogged along. If cycling you obviously have to be mindful of dogs and so can't go too fast. Love it and long may it remain.

We use the greenway for walking and cycling. Its great to walk with the kids and not worry about them with traffic, except for the occassional cycle. We also regularly cycle on the greenway which is peaceful and traffic free. The 5 mile run from Stratford to Long Marston is flat and a good riding service. Great for young riders... More

What a brilliant use of an old and rather ugly area of land! We recently stayed very close to the start of the Greenway in Upper Quinton and were thrilled to see how the development was taking shape. Lovely flat cycle paths beautifully thought out and in the process of being landscaped. As most of this is on an old... More

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
