If you are in Stratford-Upon-Avon it is easy to miss out this church, situated on the river Avon it is where Shakespeare is buried and put a curse on the grave! You do have to pay a donation to view his grave though... Make sure you walk around to the back of the church where there is benches to sit, relax and enjoy the beauty of Stratford.

We walked briskly to the church as the temperature was about minus 3. The sun was shining, the icy fog had cleared, the white-silver spider-webs glistened against the blue sky. Inside the church we were greeted by smiles and kindly words by church member-helpers, in particular a lady in a green gown, who had just attended the spreading of ashes of a 108 year old well-loved lady church member. An organist began to play uplfiting music as we learned about Shakespeare's life and death, and looked upon his last resting place. The church itself is a gem, with beatiful carvings, especially the rood screen, and the low winter sun shone brightly through the incandescent stained glass windows giving colour to the warmth of the interior itself.
A truly especial visit.

Get the tour guide and follow the beatiful streets to get there. The St Margaret stained glass to the left of the entrance is amazing.

You have to pay a small fee to visit Shakespeare's grave, but it was well worth paying. There is a volunteer stood nearby to answer any questions as well.
