Whether you choose to visit Stratford-upon-Avon by train or car taking advantage of our free parking, once you arrive at Avonlea you can explore everything that the area has to offer without needing to sit behind a steering wheel.
Just 1½ miles from the railway station and with its own off-street parking, Avonlea lets you make the most of Stratford and the Cotswolds without the need for a car.
We can even recommend organised walking tours of Stratford-upon-Avon or The Cotswolds.
Avonlea is a mere half mile easy ten-minute walk from the RSC and a town that is crammed with history: You can visit the theatre, eat in a multitude of restaurants and discover the delights of Stratford without the need of any transport other than Shanks’s pony.
If you want an entertaining and informative walking tour then let Stratford Town Walk’s team of professional, dedicated tour guides lead the way.
The Town Walk is available every day (even Christmas Day).
Enjoy a stroll around the ancient streets to discover Stratford’s history and fascinating relationship with William Shakespeare. ‘It’s like walking through the pages of history”, “a must do”, “best money spent in England”.
The Ghost Walk (Saturdays and Halloween) is entertainment with a difference, exploring Stratford’s darker history. Good old-fashioned storytelling. The guides are professional entertainers and deliver the Ghost Walk in their own unique style. “Great entertainment”.
There’s even a non-Shakespeare walk ‘Walking Without Will’ (no mention of William Shakespeare).
