We had wanted to visit this church for many years and we were not disappointed. As a church it is interesting in its own right, but with the Shakespeare connection it is doubly interesting. Access to the nave is free, but if you want to see the chancel and the Shakespeare memorial then you will be charged a fee. However,... More

very interesting, lots of people around to tell you the history of the church, great surroundings, advise to take a couple of pound with you for the £3 per person donation

A pleasant stroll to the Trinity Church alongside the River Avon Lovely old church with wooden ceilings. Paid the additional £1.00 to view Shakespeare's grave tomb in the Chancery which is well worth it.

This is a lovely little church full of history! William Shakespeare was baptized and buried here along with some of his family. Your walk through town to arrive here veers off to a lovely path along the Avon River . Before you arrive at the church you will pass through a very old and interesting cemetery. This church is the... More

We visited Shakespeare's Grave here, £2 each to get in but you may get in for free if you have a pass, we didn't realise this but it was worth the £2 charge.

how can you go to Shakespeare's birthplace without seeing his grave?! The church is a peaceful place that should'n't be missed for another trip back in time.

This church would be a "should see" by itself as the setting is peaceful and tranquil on the banks of the River Avon and there are good photo opportunities from both sides of the riverbank. The added "attraction" of being on the Shakespeare trail is a bonus and the queues all head to the altar where the Shakespeare family are... More

This church is so serene and stunning,the volunteers work so hard there to make this a lovely place to visit,somehow managing to give the tourists what they want AND keeping it as a 'working' place of worship with the services and baptisms/christenings etc. It is so well managed,you have to visit ,well worth a small charge of £2 (children only...

After visiting Halls Croft I took the few minutes walk to Holy Trinity Church which is where Shakespeare was baptised & buried.An attractive building from the outside with a well kept graveyard, the inside was unfortunately closed due to a wedding taking place.Surrounded by parks and the River Avon it makes for a very pleasant walk in peaceful surroundings.Hopefully next...

When we arrived at the church, the church service was just finishing on Easter Sunday, we had a walk around the building outside, when we went inside the church is beautiful, Shakespeare's grave and his family graves, up at the very top, small fee to enter, lovely visit.
