This long-distance path runs between Shakespeare's Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon and Shakespeare's Globe, London. Using existing footpaths, bridleways and a few minor roads, the 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 [Shakespeare's Way Association].

This trail covers the section of the footpath from the Warwickshire border north west of Chipping Norton to Oxfordshire's border with Buckinghamshire near Stonor.


Assuming a constant pace and no stops, typically it will take 17 hours 42 minutes to walk the distance and along the way 4731 calories will be burnt.
