We came upon this chapel by accident and decided to go inside. It is a real gem, just one large empty place but with fascinating stained glass, paintings and panelling. We were utterly enchanted by the peace and tranquillity which we found in this chapel.

The stained glass windows are very good and give a sense of history. It's basically one big hall, so it's a quick visit.

Real gem in the centre of Stratford, very beautiful, quiet and peaceful. The wall paintings are interesting and worth a look for anyone interested in church buildings.

Didn't really know what this was when I opened the door but what an amazing treasure. A beautiful guild chapel with an amazing mural remaining on the chancel arch. The chapel also contains a George I candle holder. Open the door, step in and escape the bustle of the everyday world

I wasn't quite sure what was inside this building but was pleased to find that the right-hand door was unlocked so that I could go in and see the insides. There was an amazing old painting on one wall and rows of interesting lamps at the long pews. The pipes of the organ gleamed. From the grammar school next door,... More

We have attended concerts here and are continually astounded by the detail that has gone into caring for this building. This medieval Chapel has been restored beautifully - and improved with under-pew heating!!! A lovely acoustic too.

Not a lot in this church, but well worth a look around. So much history, so peaceful ... a nice step back in time.
