We visited as a part of the guided city tour, and our guide (David), made it so much more interesting than it would have been if we'd gone alone

The Guild Chapel is attached to Old School where Shakespeare attended.If you visit during the summer months pupils from the school are sometimes available to give guided tours where you will see the actual classroom where Will was taught

We have been to several excellent, intimate concerts here. We attended a particularly delightful high school flute concert at lunch time. If you half close your eyes, you can believe you are back several hundred years.

This is a very old and beautiful Chapel. We happened upon while in the area to see the birthplace of Wm. Shakespeare. Well worth the photo opportunity. Nice little area and lots of shopping.

We were the only ones in the chapel when we visited and there was plenty of quiet and space to enjoy the stained glass and the lovely wall paintings. Well worth a visit when you're in town.

In Chapel Lane is the 13th century Guild Chapel. The stained glass is simply amazing and not to be missed. The original wall paintings are to be admired too! Free to enter but a donation is expected for the upkeep of the Chapel. Photography allowed.

Well worth a visit during your time in Stratford-upon-Avon to see the medieval wall paintings only revealed after the reformation white wash was removed.

Central so easy to reach, and well worth popping in for the remarkable wall painting and the sheer age of the place. If you ever get the chance to attend a concert there, do. Otherwise, do include it in your Stratford tour and enjoy the quiet and sense of deep history.

When we visited we were the only people in the Chapel and after the hordes around the Shakespeare buildings it was nice to get a feel for the history of the town away from the crowds. Restoration work has uncovered medieval paintings and together with the stain glass windows you're able to feel something of how the Chapel looked in... More
