Enjoyed the visit, and especially the energy within, in viewing the grave of the Bard, William Shakespeare and his wife Ann Hathaway. Some in other reviews have complained about the small requested donation, but every site needs contributions to pay for its upkeep, security, cleaning, etc. I was drawn to the painting on a pillar of a woman, holding what...

Holy Trinity Church is the jewel of Stratford upon Avon, the must-see attraction in Stratford. You can listen to Bach's beautiful pieces, which performed by skilled organ player. Perfect church.

Nice walk along the River Avon to this church to see where Shakespeare was buried. Lovely stained glass windows, knowledgeable staff and able to light a candle in memory of loved ones. They ask for donations for seeing grave and candles (£3 and £1).

Worth visiting, every day someone reads a passage from the bible, free to get in but you need to lay £3 to get to the gravestone. Friendly team there, full of interesting facts

3 quid to visit the grave (Please Gift-Aid it too). All the graves outwith the money collector can be freely visited for free. What do you get for the 3 quid? Take a photo to add to those already available online (the online ones will probably be better anyway given lighting conditions). Just enjoy his writings if that's your thing.

The church is open for access although a small charge is made to visit the chancel where the tombs of Shakespeare and his family are located. This is well worth paying as it helps to maintain the building. The church is immaculate and the history is presented without undo commercialism. It is moving to imagine it in Shakespeare's time and... More
