Check the website for dates and times of opening as this is a working church and is closed for weddings. Whuch iswhy we came. Before the service we were able to read up on the area where Shakespeare is buried. This chuch can be seen from the canal makes great photos.

I visit this church once a year or so, simply because it always feels like it's the first time I am visiting. I always find a new piece of interesting information, be it about Shakespeare's family or other people in that community from long time ago. Most interesting.

Holy Trinity has so much going for it, apart from the burial place of Wm. Shakespeare, such as the location on the banks of the River Avon and it is located in one of the most attractive part of Stratford-U- Avon or rather the town has grown up around it. Leaving aside the crowds around the Tomb of W. S,... More

Good church to look around. Not interested in paying to enter a church, so didn't go up to the altar and steeple.

Must visit this church when in the area if you haven't done before. Lots of history involved, visit Shakespeare's grave, other historical graves and artefacts. Not much more to say!

Well worth the short walk from town centre. Interesting information to read in the church leading towards Shakespeare's grave inside the church. Unfortunately, at present, there is some exterior renovation work and scaffolding around the church entrance

Oliver Cromwell has a lot to answer for. This is another church that he smashed up to remove all religious symbols of the Catholic Church. The windows were mostly smashed here and replaced. The windows are amazing but you wonder what the original would have been like. The church is mostly gothic is style which changed a bit as it... More

Loved coming into this church! Received a discount, as we came in with the Stratford Walking Tour group (paid 1 GBP). Love how it's an active church, with a congregation that worships there. Loved the embroidery on the kneelers and pew cushions. Saw an original 1611 King James Bible, great stories carved into the "seats" in the choir, the baptismal... More
