Lovely to walk in and not pay. Took a break from the rain and enjoyed this chapel. If chapels are your thing then do stop... at least you won’t have to pay like everywhere else in town

One of the best things in Stratford on Avon is to find somewhere that does not charge for entry. There is an excellent doom screen and some interesting memorial. Very well located too.

This church is in the middle of several of Shakespeare's attractions and easy to pop in to check out some local history with old wall paintings that have been discovered and restored.
