SHAKESPEARE'S WAY

Shakespeare's Way goes 146 miles across country between Stratford upon Avon and Shakespeare's Globe in London, following a route that William Shakespeare may have taken on his journeys between his home town and the city where he spent his productive years. Passing over the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and the Chilterns, and going beside the Thames, it links some of Britain's best-loved tourist destinations. Read more.
