This is such a beautiful church in a stunning location by the river. There is so much to see and the stained glass windows are amazing. There is a small charge to enter the Chancel to see the Bards grave but you also get to see the carved wood misericords and the high altar. A very worthwhile visit and then... More

Leaving the best until last. The stained glass windows are breathtaking. The new extension is testament to not forgotten craftsmanship. This church must be one of the most visited in England, its location on the Avon is picture perfect. Don't leave Stratford without seeing it.

We came here for a look around. It's a lovely church overlooking the River Avon. For a small fee you can also visit Shakespeare's grave.

Its free to visit the church itself however the only charge is to visit Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway's burial, pricing is worth it. It has a tranquil and calm environment and is beautiful to the eye.

This is a quaint church. While admission to the actual church is free, there is a charge to enter the area where Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway are buried. I thought it worth the price.

This is the church that hosted several key moments in Shakespeare's life, including his burial, and that of several members of his close family. There is a suggested donation to go down and visit the graves. If you live in the UK and pay tax please don't forget to ask to giftaid it! The costs to churches with particular historical... More

The Holy Trinity church is easily found a short walk along the river from the RSC. A beautiful Tudor church with an exqiiste interior. The Bard's tomb and relatives are all there on display. The church is worth a visit in its own right. Suggested donation £3 per adult. There is also a gift shop inside.

You can add this to your list if you are visiting other Shakespear venues. Half an hour is all you need.

Shakespeare and several of his family are buried here. Well worth a visit. There is a small charge to pay to view but the Church is breathtaking.
