Nice long thin narrow church with an organ just above the front aisle as you go in. All the pews tops have lamp lights on them. Not certain I’ve seen this in a church before. History of the place written down on leaflets, no English...More

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.

Stratford is something of a mob scene in midsummer, and the Guild Chapel was a much-needed refuge of quiet for our family. A friendly, knowledgeable volunteer showed us around, gave us an interesting historical account of the Guild and Shakespeare's father's role in it, and...More
