A treasure in the centre of touristic chaos

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.

Wondered in and was impressed. Narrow chapel and bright. There was not a lot of information which is why I only rated it 4 stars. Still, it was worth checking out.

One building in Stratford's historic spine, undoubtedly the chapel Shakespeare would have been in. A small space, but do note the doom paintings on the walls, now partly revealed after centuries of being covered in whitewash.

Lovely little chapel that is steeped in history. One of the places that Oliver Cromwell wanted painted white as to remove all the christian symbols from the walls. You will see that today as they have removed the white wash and you can just about see the old paintings. The stainglass windows are stunning and the whole building is just... More
