My love of visiting old churches was rewarded here by seeing the family tombs of William Shakespeare, his wife and descendants

Apart from the obvious , Shakespearean connection it was well worth a visit if only to discover the Misericords . My visit was with family ,but trip advisor only have family (teens) options and neither of us were teens .. Or indeed a couple which was another option

Take a relaxing walk along the river Avon to end up at the beautiful church where William Shakespeare is laid. A very scenic church overlooking the river. Take note of the closing times as the church will close to the public at 4pm.

Even without the obvious attraction of Shakespeare's tomb, this church is well worth a visit. Beautiful stained glass windows, choir stalls with some delightful misericords and a glorious location on the bank of the Avon.

I can't believe the church is involved in a money-making scam. By charging a fee for visitors to stand in a part of a church where allegedly Shakespeare is buried. I say allegedly because most experts in the field know that Edward De Vere 17th Earl of Oxford was Shakespeare. And Oxford is not buried is a mediocre church on... More

If you visit Stratford and want to see everything Shakespeare, then this church is a must see. Small charge for entry, but worth the fee

We brought our little boy to Stratford-upon-Avon to show him the Shakespeare story and this was a brilliant part of the weekend. We walked from the town along the riverside path where he enjoyed climbing the weird shaped trees and we enjoyed the views of the Theatre and the approaching church. A brilliant guide in the church showed our little... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Holy Trinity Church whilst on the Town Tour. It is a beautiful church - even more so as we were there just before a magical Christmas wedding. See the gravestone of William Shakespeare as well as other members of his family (extra to pay for), as well as the carvings with their own unique... More

Imposing riverside church in spectacular setting and well worth a visit as part of a longer round trip walk from the town.
