Very interesting little church on beautiful grounds. Being Shakespeare's burial place there was much information. Our guide explained about "very special" seats when people had to stand for hours. Do not miss it.

I was most impressed with the original copy of the King James' Bible and confused as to why Shakespeare's tombstone is illegible but his family's are clear and easy to read.

Shakespeare is interred in this pretty church. It is a short walk from the theatre, so it is a must if you are interested in Shakespeare. It can be closed when church services are being held. Amateur theatre groups stage performances most afternoons in a park that is adjacent to the church.

This Church is lovely, situated on the river/canal bank, surrounded by huge trees and a cemetery. The Church was beautiful and the stain glass windows spectacular. We walked around inside the Church and when reaching the front, were told to pay a fee to look at Shakespeare's resting place. We would rather have paid a fee to enter the Church... More

This is a lovely church in a perfect spot for a gentle stroll out of the town centre. It is situated along the river bank passed the Stratford Theatre. There are lovely gardens to walk through and a couple of charming public houses to rest weary bones for a drink and food. For me there is no downside.

Though not a religious person, I couldn't help but be impressed by this fantastic church. The church organ was being played while I was there. It made the hair stand up on the back of my neck to stand by Shakespears grave in that atmosphere. It's a beautiful building and is well worth a visit.

The church is nice but for me it was the beautiful tombs that did it. Shakespeare's own grave and this of his daughters was interesting to see. Also, it was nice to walk over the graveyard and see 18th century stones.

This is where the Bard is buried. I refused to pay £2 to enter. It was not pointed out to me, at the time, that this was only a donation and it is not worded as such. I suggest that they word it to make it plain that the £2 (or other charges)is a donation. I did donate £1 as... More
