Long-distance cycle map for Stratford-upon-Avon to London bike route using NCN 4 and 5
This cycle ride connects two locations whose history is forever entwined with the life of the world’s most famous playwright. Stratford-upon-Avon is where William Shakespeare was born and saw out his last years, and Bankside was home to the magnificent Globe Theatre.
The ride links two of England’s greatest rivers and theatres: Starting at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre on the banks of the Avon in Stratford, it ends on the south bank of the Thames in central London at the magical timber-framed and thatched “wooden O” of Shakespeare’s Globe.
The route takes in the charming countryside of Warwickshire, Oxfordshire and includes a climb over the Chilterns.
The full-colour map based on Ordnance Survey data shows clearly mapped cycle routes on traffic-free paths, quiet lanes and roads, with easy-to-read contours, route profiles and mile markers. Also features detailed inset maps for the major towns and cities, tourist info and cycle shop and hire information, and other local routes.
