Nice flat tranquil stroll around the river, plenty of wildlife, two weirs and a lock. If you go that little bit further towards the racecourse there is a cafe in a converted railway carriage, ideal break before the stroll back to town. Superb.

great for a wander or a trek as far as you like and you can use both sides of river so can make a circle!

This is a wonderfully kept up walkway. It really is peaceful and beautiful. Take the time to walk from the visitor center to Holy Trinity and you'll end up in the old graveyard.

After taking in the sites in Stratford Upon Avon, we wound up behind the Shakespeare Theater overlooking the River Avon and the trail. We walked down through the park to Trinity Church and just took our time along the river to complete our day, before taking the train to Bath. The town has so much to offer: history, shopping, sites... More

The walk is lovely, starting at the center of town. You can make the walk as long as you like since the trail continues along the river but we just walked down to the last bridge, crossed and came back into town. The path goes by one of the locks on the Avon and we had fun assisting a boater... More

it was well marked with a lot of opportunities to take some really good photographs. The bandstand was being used and the whole park felt very quintessentially English.

You have to do this if you are in SUA. It is a lovely walk whatever the weather although of course at its best if its not raining, visit Shakespeare's grave on the way out!

Walked from town along river to greenway bridge and back to town along greenway past the racecourse..late spring with trees in blossom and the river by one's side. Easy walk one small climb upwards but otherwise flat

This is a lovely walk to do. You can go however far (or short) you like and it's nice to get out of the bustle of Stratford.

We did this trail on a Sunday afternoon and it was very pleasant. You soon got away from the crowds and into some very pleasant countryside. The rout is reasonably well marked and relatively flat apart from one section. It is definitely worth a go, especially if you want a bit of peace and quiet.
