Offering wonderful views of the Warwickshire countryside, Stratford Greenway is a 5-mile (8 km) cycle route passing the Stratford race course and allowing you to ride over Stannals Bridge and along the tree-lined route into Long Marston.

An easy-to-ride and fun route for riders of all ages and abilities.

Location

Warwickshire’s Stratford Greenway extends for 5 miles (8 km) from Stratford-upon-Avon to Long Marston.

Let’s Pedal

Stratford Greenway is a flat and wide trail suitable for everyone.

The official start of the Stratford Greenway is a little tricky to access being from a path running south under the bridge at Seven Meadows Road from Saffron Walk.

The easiest place to begin your ride is from the pay and display car park off the roundabout at the end of Seven Meadows Road.

Follow the Greenway south taking care to cross the few quiet roads that cross the trail.

If you wish to start from Long Marston, then start from the car park and head north.
