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.

A really lovely way to finish off your Shakespeare trail. £2 to go a little further into the church to see the burial spot. Worth it and nice to know the money goes to church restoration and maintenance. Light a candle for a loved one in a special place - x

Everyone who visits Stratford upon Avon will want to pay homage to the great one who resides here. Not quite as busy as the main streets and the various houses that were associated with his life and family. Whilst this is a freebie, they do ask for donations if you want to have a good look. We found the Church,... More

So wanted to see this and was not disappointed. Peaceful and beautiful church and Will paid for his spot inside, 17 foot down, and is next to his wife and family.

Shakespeare's burial place along with most of his family. Plus his baptismal place (probably!) A must visit if you're doing the shakespeare trail in Stratford

The church of the Holy Trinity in Stratford was part of a lap discovering Shakespeare’s birthplace. There is a lot in common with similar edifices in the Cotswold environs, but also much to distinguish it for its particularities: a pleasant walk around its approaches, its external unsullied gothic manner, its graveyards in the shade of the lush foliage overhead, the...
