What a beautiful church! The stained glass windows are amazing. So much history and to see the graves as well.

The church is beautiful, there is lots to see, inside and out. When you're done inside, walk down to the river and see the boats cruising up and down. Such a relaxed vibe.

Lovely little church with wonderful history. Take note of the original records of Shakespeare's Baptism and Burial dates. Nominal fee.

Lots of well presented information about Shakespeare and his immediate family, all buried in the chapel. Small charge to enter the burial area, but didn't mind this. The church itself is also very beautiful and tranquil. Just wish people wouldn't take photos!

This is a very attractive church on the banks of the Avon, reached best by a pleasant stroll on the side of the river from the canal basin near the town centre. Despite the negative attentions of post Reformation zeal, it retains much of beauty in its windows and wall adornments. But of course, it is the Shakespeare link that... More

This is the church where Shakespeare and his wife are buried. Copies of his baptism and burial were on show at the back of the church. On show is a bible that would have been used and read from during Shakespeare's lifetime. Lovely well kept church, strong supported from tourists , and kept immaculately in order. Various chapels leading off... More

Minus the chaos of the tourists and snack table at the back of the church, this is quite a breathtaking church, with exquisite stained glass and unique wooden carvings. The grounds are shaded and provide just enough gloom for one's wild imagination. The adjacent park also offers Shakespeare performances in the summer. Shakespeare and his family are also buried at...

Beware Startford is a tourist trap!!! That being said this is a beautiful church! Stanford's oldest church, more than 800 years. It is the burial site of Shakespeare and his wife, Anne Hathaway. There are beautiful stained glass windows. I love visiting old churches like this where a certain peace and calmness transcends one's life. Grounds are lovely, and it... More
