A beautiful building

I'm not religious but you don't have to be to appreciate this wonderful building. The stained glass windows are stunning and the front of the church houses Shakespeare's grave.

The church it's self is a must see, it's stain glass windows are stunning. It's a big part of the shakespear history as he was baptised, married and buried here alongside his family. It's a few minuets walk from the middle of Stratford upon avon where the other houses are but it's a nice walk along the canal.

Very attractive building from both outside and inside. The stain glass windows are beautiful. There is a small gift shop and staff are friendly. However, when we first used to visit this church you could view William Shakespeare's grave for free but now they charge you a couple of £s. I do not agree with this charge but if others... More

Can recommend you visit the church as it is beautiful and located in a really peaceful spot. You can pop in on your way round form the River Walk

The church is a 'must see' because of the records relating to Shakespeare, as well as the actual font used for his baptism and the gravestone. However, the stained glass windows are quite wonderful and worth a visit in their own right. The church shop sells a small book on the subject and we are very glad that we bought... More

It is a short walk from the High Street or along the canalside and worth doing. Firstly, it's free to go in, with a recommended donation of £2 to see the Shakespeare graves. Secondly, there is more to the church than just the famous inhabitants - we took some time to explore, the St George stained glass window was a... More

Visited today with the help of Stratfords town walk guide. Absolutely beautiful church with lots of historical information on display (most of which about shakespeare) which is why we went but may not be the primary reason for others. Would definitely go again so as I could linger rather than move on with the walk.

Quite interesting to see Will's impressive tomb. The church nicely situated near the Bancroft Gardens and the river.

Beautiful stained glass, interesting leaflet about Shakespeare's family graves. Good value for £1. Interesting seating arrangements for those who may have struggled with long sermons!
