This place is where Shakespeare is buried, and the building itself is very interesting and beautiful. The exterior is also very interesting to appreciate the architecture and to have a walk. Definitely touristic.

For 50p you can see where Shakespeare rests and read the curse over his grave. Nice little church and then you can stroll through the graveyard.

A must for a visit to Stratford. OK, some moan about paying to visit the chancel but come on, Shakespeare is Shakespeare, and this is part of his story. A beautiful working church, and long may it remain so.

After visiting Shakespeare's birthplace we walked down the River Avon and enjoyed a wonderful stroll meandering our way to the church. Took us a while because we kept stopping to take pictures and admire the river and the boats going up and down the canal. Once we got there, we actually came up from behind the church and saw the...

Loved seeing Shakespeare's and family graves and the wonderful stained glass window, in a peaceful and beautiful old church.

The Sunday service was in full flow - how refreshing to know this church is not about collecting money every five minutes. When the service was over went to see Shakespeare grave. Beautiful kept grounds a must see when visiting Stratford.

I don't understand why people moan about having to pay, I've paid to go into many Abbey's, Cathedrals and churches, I'm glad I went and I enjoyed it, but then again I do love visiting churches anyway! Seriously you can't go to Stratford upon Avon without visiting the resting place of William Shakespeare!

This is a beautiful little church, which contains the grave of William Shakespeare. It's a lovely short walk along the Avon banks from the RSC Theatre to a well-preserved gem. Free to look around the church, but £2 to enter the chancel, where the grave is. Felt a bit tacky paying to see a grave, donations yes, but a fee...... More
