Stratford Town Walk – a ‘must do’ when visiting Shakespeare’s home town.
The ideal way to discover Stratford upon Avon and its fascinating relationship with William Shakespeare, is to join the award-winning, daily town walk, every day even Christmas Day!
The entertaining walking tour passes the Shakespeare Town Houses, Royal Shakespeare Theatres, River Avon, 15th century timber-framed buildings, Shakespeare’s School and includes a visit to the Guild Chapel (free entry) and Holy Trinity Church to see Shakespeare’s grave (subject to a small fee of £1 to the Church on the day).
The guides are passionate about Stratford and Shakespeare and deliver the tour in their own unique style. A few laughs along the way, snippets of interesting information with fascinating stories of fire, flood, plague, old-fashioned sayings, medieval cures and history, wrapped up in a little Shakespeare. Something for everyone. Duration around 2hrs, but you can leave any time.
There’s no need to book the Town Walk (unless a group of 10+), just turn up whatever the weather. Meet just before the start time, by the swan fountain on Waterside, near the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and opposite Barnaby’s fish and chip shop.

Adults £6, over 65’s and students £5, children (under 16yrs) £3, under 8yrs FREE
It’s a good idea to take the walk at the start of your visit, to make use of the discount vouchers. Each person is given a ticket with 5 tear-off vouchers. With no use-by date, they can be used to obtain discounts at a range of shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions. For example, the Butterfly Farm, MAD Museum, Bancroft Cruisers and 2 for 1 entry to the Shakespeare Houses. The vouchers mean you can return to Stratford again and again…..
Stratford Town Walk won the Godiva Award for Best Visitor Attraction in 2006, the Pride of Stratford Award for Tourism Initiative of the Year in 2015 and holds a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award.
