Leamington Spa to Stratford

From elegant Leamington Spa into the very heart of Stratford on Avon

This interesting route commences in elegant Leamington Spa, skirts the historic town of Warwick with its fine castle before joining the Stratford canal towards and delivering you right into the heart of Stratford.

The first days walk takes you west out of Leamington Spa and around the ancient town of Warwick with its impressive castle.  Beyond Warwick the canal rises steadily through the Hatton locks into attractive Warwickshire via the Shrewley tunnel. 

 

The Stratford on Avon canal continues through rural Warwickshire and over England's longest aqueduct before taking you right into the heart of Stratford.  The canal is beneath road level in the town meaning you emerge at the canal basin right next to the theatre and river at the heart of this historic town.

 

At Wilmcote three miles before Stratford you can visit Mary Arden's birthplace.
