Hereward Way is a long-distance footpath in England that links the Viking Way at Oakham with the Peddars Way at Knettishall Heath, near Thetford.

Each end of the path has railway access at Oakham railway station and Harling Road railway station. Stations towards the centre of the path are located at Shippea Hill and Ely. The footpath runs through Stamford, Peterborough, March, Ely and Brandon. It also goes through Thetford Forest.
