Lovely, quite and well maintained. One of the important Shakespeare land marks as this was where he received his religious education

Wonderful chapel in the heart of Stratford upon Avon. Interesting building with colourful stained glass windows and the restored images on the wall which Henry the Eighth tried to destroy in the late 15th century. An interesting find.

Well worth popping into, especially for the stained glass windows and the embroideries. Good to see the restoration work being done.

Fascinating history and has been visited by the Queen and Prince Charles. It is a small chapel but great for a 30 minute visit. The tapestries near the alter are superb and are fully explained.

I don't want to give the chapel too high a score, it deserves to be a hidden gem. It's a peaceful place with interesting stained glass. Leave a donation for the upkeep.

Fantastic Medieval frescos. Some hard to decipher but worth looking. The little black Devils are cute. Just wander in.

A quiet retreat to just sit and work out the faded murals, on a busy day. This lovely little church is unmanned and free but all donations to help restore would be welcome. Will be interesting to see it once fully restored to its former self

A very lovely Chapel in the old part of town. Just nice to go in and read on the walls all about it.

Pop into this church which is unmanned and free, and view an old church. It is in the process of being refurbished and needs the funds to successfully do so. Leave some money in the bin to help them along.

Worth popping in to see the 15th century faded murals. Built a lot earlier than the 15th century, but reconstructed.
