The Stratford Greenway
Starting from our Railway Carriage at Seven Meadows Road, The Stratford Greenway is a 5 mile, disused railway line which Warwickshire County Council in partnership with Sustrans have transformed into a traffic free foot/cycle path. Starting at the cycle centre at Seven Meadows Car Park on the West side of town and heading out along the river, it travels along the River Avon and the Racecourse towards the nearby villages of Long Marston and Welford on Avon.

The route is part of Sustrans National Cycle Network Route5 and as well as the cycle centre the Carriages34644 cafe next to the cycle hire and Carriages5344 Cafe halfway along the Greenway are perfect refreshment stops.
