The district is named “Stratford-on-Avon” to distinguish it from its main town of Stratford-upon-Avon where the district council is based.

The district is mostly rural and covers most of the southern half of Warwickshire. As well as Stratford, the district also includes the towns of Alcester, Southam, and Shipston-on-Stour, and the large villages of Studley and Wellesbourne.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the borough of Stratford-upon-Avon, Alcester Rural District, Shipston-on-Stour Rural District, Southam Rural District and a majority of Stratford-upon-Avon Rural District.
