Shakespeare's Way


This long-distance path runs between Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare’s Globe, London - a total distance of 146 miles. Using existing footpaths, bridleways and a few minor roads, this path has been planned to follow, as closely as possible, a route that Shakespeare may have taken on some of his journeys back and forth between his home at Stratford-upon-Avon and the city where he spent most of his productive years.



The entire route between Stratford-upon-Avon and West Drayton is waymarked in both directions. The route between West Drayton and Shakespeare's Globe follows signed paths alongside the Grand Union Canal.
