This was a wonderful experience. We arrived just before they closed the doors and were able to go inside for a few minutes. Simply beautiful.

Holy Trinity is a beautiful church in it's own right, but is most famous as the place where Shakespeare is buried. The grounds are beautiful and really peaceful, if you visit as part of the Town Walk you will find out some great facts about the church. It is free to enter the church itself and admire the architecture but... More

Lovely church and people. We stop by just to have a look around but we were immediately called by the people at the church who were really nice and helpful and who explained us the history of the village

Beautiful church where Shakespeare was christened and buried. Loads more to see aside from this. Well worth a visit. Very photogenic.

This lovely old church on the banks of the river is a must if you are visiting Stratford. It contains the grave of William Shakespeare in an area for which there is a charge but the rest of the church is well worth lingering in.

A nice well kept Church where The Brad and some memeber sof his family are buried. Free to enter the Church and all they want is £2 donation to see Shakespears buriel section, which is in the church. £2 is fair-do's as they need to keep the church upkeep some how. A lovey man gave us lots of info etc.

Visible from Bancroft Basin, a pleasant walk along the riverside brings the visitor here. A well kept, tourist friendly church with emphasis on the Great Bard's links. The contribution of background information and quotations by the smart elderly gentleman seated in the Choir was impressive and entertaining. He made our visit memorable.

It was very unusual in as much as when you look down the aisle it appears to turn a corner at the end, very slightly, but it is there. apparently is it supposed to represent the head of Christ on the cross which was hanging to one side!!! A bit discomposed to find that you must pay £1.00 to see... More

lovely church, with interesting bend to the angle of the chapel- full of significance. Make sure you get an explanation about all the headstones and of course Shalespear's gravestone

Well worth a look, lovely walk along the river and around the church. Peaceful and relaxing and a nice addition to the rest of a lovely town.
