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.

Walking around town and stumbled across this place. Amazing historical building. Take the time to wander and read the information.

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

We stumbled upon this building by accident and thoroughly enjoyed exploring it. It is a lovely quiet place and we especially enjoyed looking at the "Doom" painting over the chancel arch. There is not very much to see, but what is there is fascinating.

This space felt like the history was oozing from the walls and beams. Just felt totally enveloped by it and didn't want to leave.

The atmosphere is peaceful and timeless. Such a beautiful church. To think of the people who have visited here and all the history it has seen.

Makes me laugh when tourists walk into this building just to walk straight out again, once they realise that it's not the house that Shakespeare probably didn't live in. There is medieval artwork on the wall. This is the oldest landmark in Stratford, and so beautiful. I would say that I'm "sad" that tourists visit it so fleetingly, but I... More

Nice but is really just an in and out. An interesting feature is a mural partially recovered that W.S.'s father was ordered to cover up be the Tudor faction in the town

Having been schooled here, I take more or less any chance to visit the Chapel where we held assembly each morning - except the Catholic pupils who were shut away in a distant cubicle. Key to a satisfactory reminiscence of the Chapel is having sat in the choir. Plebs in the common stalls were the lower orders, the supplicants. For... More

A very interesting visit for anyone interested in churches and history. It is a shame the wall painting is not very clear but it is still worth making the effort to go. Beware though- the first time a visit was planned and booked with a group, we found it locked. We found it open one Saturday just by chance.
