As an historic town, Stratford-upon-Avon accessibility has been something of an obstacle to inclusivity over the last few decades.
You might remember that Stratfordblog started as I couldn’t find any information about pushchair-friendly cafes in the town. I’m beyond that stage with my children now, but aware that there are many more parents, carers and those with physical disabilities for whom access remains a priority.
The situation continues to improve across Stratford-upon-Avon, you’ll be pleased to know, with greater access for those with physical disabilities, those with hearing, sight and mobility impairments, and those with sensory issues.

Elizabeth Dixon, a powered wheelchair user and Stratford-upon-Avon resident, has been instrumental in both improving this access and delivering information about it.
With Stratford Town Trust and Stratford District Council, Elizabeth has helped to create a guide to Stratford-upon-Avon accessibility, which you can download below. There’s also a town-centre map, featuring accessibility information, also available to download.
