Beautiful church and surrounding grounds. Everyone goes to see William Shakespeare's final resting place (after seeing where he was born). It's a stroll past the RSC - all very pretty. Obviously there isn't much to see once you go into the church. They ask for a £3 donation.

Just a short and very easy walk from the main part of Stratford. A small donation is requested to see Shakespeare's grave but even without this famous resident it is a lovely little church.

After taking a very scenic short walk along the canal and through the old graveyard, we went into the church specifically to see Shakespeare's grave. While the church itself was very pretty with lovely stained glass windows, the real draw for me was to pay homage to the Bard himself and I enjoyed seeing his final resting place and the... More

A rather lovely church, but more importantly a ‘must see’ in order to visit the last resting place of William Shakespeare. When we visited it was quite quiet which meant that you could really soak up the peaceful atmosphere. Whether it is the same experience at the height of summer though I am unsure.

Situated right on the river Avon and an easy walk from the other attractions in town. A lovely church surrounded by beautiful grounds and a peaceful graveyard with weathered stones. I visited on sunny, chilly Saturday morning in January right after the church opened and had the place to myself. The church felt spiritual and restful with beautiful, graceful architecture....

We've been in here before to see where Shakespeare and is family are buried but this time we went as part of the town walk around Stratford. The walk leader pointed out lots of different things to see and read and the volunteers there were also full of information

Such a beautiful church set in lovely grounds. The stone work on some of the old graves is amazing. A lovely walk. Some renovation works currently taking place but this only cuts out a small portion of the walk. Inside the church the architecture is immense and yours eyes dart everywhere trying to take it all in. The church itself... More

The place where William Shakespeare has been buried, you can go into that part for a small collaboration of £2.00. After that, the church entry and walk around is free for anyone.
