Great walking tour, definitely not to be missed when in Stratford we had a wonderful guide called Barbara who had a lot of knowledge and was joyous and full of enthusiasm. Always worth doing even if you think you have seen everything in Stratford.

It is really value added to join this town walk to know more about Stratford upon Avon. Barbara gives more about history and information throughout the walk and make us enjoy the city.

A free walk from and around the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon. We had a lovely lady, Barbara, who was very accommodating and knowledgeable. A brilliant 2 hour tour of the town.

The best thing to do before you do anything else in Stratford-upon-Avon is to arrange for yourself a walking tour which begins in the square outside the theatre. After two hours hiking around the streets you’ll know more about the history and gossip of the...More
