Shakespeare's Way

William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest dramatist of all time. Shakespeare's Way follows the route that the poet may have taken on his journeys between his home in Stratford-upon-Avon and the Globe Theatre in London, where most of his plays were first performed.

Passing through the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds and the Chilterns, the trail follows the River Thames into the heart of England’s capital city. It passes some of England's greatest attractions, including Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Oxford and London. The walk also visits many picturesque villages and market towns and passes a wealth of sites of historic interest.

Shakespeare's Way was developed to raise funds for the Shakespeare Hospice in Stratford-upon-Avon. For every person booking this tour, Contours Walking Holidays will make a £5.00 donation to the Shakespeare Hospice.
