This church is absolutely stunning, worth a visit in itself, the stained glass windows are just gorgeous. It is included in the multi house pass available for purchase to gain access to all the Shakespeare attractions (there are different types of pass available), which is valid for 12 months from purchase. If you don't have a house pass, there is... More

This is a beautiful church and worth visiting for the stained glass alone. The guide was pleasant and helpful, the display boards clear and informative,

Lovely church to view then a £2 payment to go further in and view the famous graves. Get a pass or vouchers to bring that down to £1.

A pleasant church whose major claim to tourism is the grave of Shakespeare and his family. There is a fee if you don't have a house pass. It is interesting to see and isn't too far to get to from the town.

Very interesting (even after seeing dozens of other churches) and the brief cameo appearance by the vicar was very welcome (he stopped off for a quick chat - but perhaps dont expect that every time).

Other than Shakespeare's tomb, which is a historic and interesting site to visit, this church also has other fun facts to offer about the area. It's a beautiful place with a very nice atmosphere. The staff were very nice, and it only cost 50p (for students) to enter the shakespeare's tomb area.

Quiet contemplation and much more to absorb than Shakespeare's grave. Well worth a visit, enjoyed the prayer reading during our time there, everyone just stopped and listened- so quiet and time to reflect - thank you

Free to get in as part of the Shakespeare Five houses ticket and certainly worth a visit. If you visit the other Shakespeare sites I would reccomend you do this last. There is something quite special about wandering through the Bard's life and then finishing off by seeing his tomb. The church itself is lovely. We were met by a... More

Carol service was perfect, the church is warm and welcoming, like all the volunteers working there. Beautiful architecture, perfect atmosphere to get you in a happy festive spirit.

Don't let the construction work at the entrance put you off. The interior is superb but it's quite busy inside with visitors shuffling around Shakespeare's grave. Can only imagine what it must be like in the summer! Anyway, we had an enjoyable half-hour
