The Leamington–Stratford line is a railway line linking Leamington Spa and Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire, England. It follows the Chiltern Main Line from Leamington to Hatton before diverging to the south. At Wilmcote, it joins the Birmingham to Stratford Line.

The line serves the following places.

Passenger services are operated by Chiltern Railways. They replaced the previous operator, First Great Western Link, in early 2005. Also from 2014 some services run from Birmingham Snow Hill to Stratford-upon-Avon via Dorridge and the North Curve of Hatton triangle operated by West Midlands Railway (taking over from London Midland in December 2017).
