A fascinating church in its own right with carved choir and stained glass windows (guide books availalbe for both). Most people probably visit for Shakespeare's grave (for which there is a charge to see) but worth the money for completing a Shakespeare pilgrimage - he may also have married here but this is not certain.

Very interesting and historic. The solitude is to be experienced. Adjacent to the river, it is in a beautiful location.

Wonderful church, very well kept. You pay a small fee to visit Shakespeare's grave, but it is very much worth it. Panels give you some extra information about his life around this church and about his funeral. The volunteers in the church are really attentive. Dave there gave us much extra information about Shakespeare, when we asked him about his... More

Called in to the church while in Stratford. Of course there's the tomb of the bard to be seen. However there are other things to see too. Being an organist, I was interested in the one there, which us unusual in having two swell divisions :-) Stained glass is nice; made better as the sun had come out and lit... More

We spent about an hour here. The building dates back to 1210. Shakespeare was buried here in 1616 and you can look at where his and his families bodies lay after paying the £3 to enter the Chancel, which you really should as you probably won't get the opportunity again. The Vergers are welcoming and knowledgeable and encourage questions and... More

While in Stratford Upon Avon walking around the old town area we went to Holy Trinity Church mainly to see Shakespeare's grave . We did not know that he was buried inside the church in front of the altar. His grave is there along with his wife Ann's and three other members of the family. He must have had some... More

A nice addition to the shakespeare attractions, a beautiful church in its own right. The opportunity to light a candle is always a bonus for me and seemed very popular with everyone. They ask for a donation of £3 to see the grave of shakespeare, and whilst it is phrased like an option, there are custodians to prevent you from... More
