Stratford Town Walk

Stratford Town Walk, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England

Following Government Guidelines Stratford Town Walk is re-commencing the award-winning Town Walk on 1st April 2021.

However, taking into account social distancing and moving around the ancient streets of Stratford in a safe manner it will not be possible to offer public walks on a 'just turn up basis'. The safety of visitors and guides is paramount. Our public walks will resume as and when it is safe to do so and we are allowed to mix households.

Stratford Town Walk has a large pool of fabulous guides who cannot wait to begin guiding again and sharing their love of Stratford and Shakespeare with visitors.

From 1st April 2021 they will be offering private Town Walks for those isolating together (in a single household). The walks will be available every day, must be pre-booked and will be at a time of choice (subject to guide availability and sufficient notice). Payment will be required in advance.

Their special (reduced) fee for this private walk is only £10 per adult, £5 per child (under 8yrs free) with a minimum fee of £30.

Multi, award-winning Town Walk in Shakespeare's Stratford upon Avon, every day - even Christmas Day! And, Saturday evening Ghost Walk and, private walks and coach tours for groups and schools on a day and time of your choice.
