This was located in a quiet part of the town in close proximity to the bus stop. A gentle walk to the church and a visit the the bards grave was a 'must do' when visiting Stratford. Well worth the visit. many interesting pieces of history in th church and as with all places of interest ni Stratford, the local... More

Absolutely must visit here, take the easy walk down the riverside and end up at the church, only about 1 km and lots of things to see. The church is very interesting and well maintained besides Shakespeare's tomb there's a lot off local history there, it's also very peasant to sit alongside the river in the church grounds.

I have been to Stratford several times but not visited this church before. I was a little hesitant initially about paying to see Shakespeare's grave within the church as I am of the opinion that these things should be free. However, the charge is only £2 or £1 for concessions so not likely to break the bank and an good... More

Beautiful church and grounds but was a little surprised to see them charging to see Shakespeare's Grave, worth visiting the church yard though.

Lovely little church - had to visit as we had done all the other "Shakespeare" venues - glad we did it was worth it.

Very nicely maintained quiet family Church. Thankfully still open to the public & still used by the local Congregation. Respectful & dignified memorial to Will & some family members. Well worth a visit. Nothing to dislike.

What a nice change these days to go into a "tourist" Church and not to be charged a fortune to go in. There is no charge to visit the Church and just a £1 "donation" for seniors to see the actual graves of William Shakespeare and his family. The description and information panels were so informative and interesting and certainly... More

This is a beautiful church in an amazing location. Had a lovely atmosphere. Sadly they charge £2 to see Shakespeare's grave and we have an issue with churches charging people to see something inside. Why not let people give a donation if they so wish - it's God's House at the end of the day not a museum.

this church is off the beaten path and is still in active use. we happened upon the church as it was in use for a christening so we had to wait awhile to get in to see it. The wait was fine since we had the chance to wander around the Grounds and get a feeling for the area. when... More
