Warwickshire Cakes and Ale Trail

161 km / 100 miles

Warwickshire
The Warwickshire Cakes and Ale Trail is a pleasurable seven-section ramble through the middle of England in Shakespeare's Warwickshire. Beginning in the Bard's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon the route journeys along the Avon and Arrow Rivers to the Roman town of Alcester, then north to Studley and cross-country via Ullenhall to the mile-long street of history that is Henley-in-Arden. Going partly along the towpath of the Stratford Canal and partly across verdant country, the route leads next to Kenilworth, where Robert Dudley's Castle awaits with its much-vaunted Elizabethan Garden.

From Kenilworth the route heads south via Mercian Offchurch to the many-pubbed village of Harbury before climbing over the Burton Dassett hills and circling the perimeter of the Battle of Edgehill to come into Kineton. A further southern jaunt takes walkers down the Vale of Tysoe to the lovely Cotswold town of Shipston-on-Stour, then it's back via Ilmington and Long Marston to Stratford-upon-Avon.

The route of The Warwickshire Cakes and Ale Trail is given in detail, accompanied by diagrams and illustrated information about places passed through. The main features of each town are also described and illustrated, together with listings for Real Cakes, Real Ales and accommodation.
