Worth the walk out to the church,as we approached the sunlight was back lighting the nave windows. Make sure you duck to go through the door it's very low. The Church was still celebrating the end of WW1 and was beautifully decorated with " there but not there" sillouettes such an old and beautiful church dated to 1210 a real gem

I have to say, considering the town is promoted as Shakespeare’s hometown I thought his testing place would have been more grand. The church is beautiful and open 365 days a year. Touring the church is free but to enter his resting place it costs £3. I can only speak for myself, so I will say I was humbled and honored to pay my respects.

A must visit sight, well kept, although it was undergoing restoration work. Lovely gardens, and on the banks of river Avon. This is the church where Shakespeare was baptized and buried.

Within walking distance of many of the other attractions. A beautiful church but if you want to see where Shakespeare is buried you’re asked for a contribution of £3 per person. However you can then go down and see where not only Shakespeare is laid to rest (you will now know that he’s in Stratford because that’s where he died!) but other members of his family are also there. Visit took about 20 minutes.

Not just the Bard, but members of his close family also rest here. Also a lovely church with lots of stained glass. Interesting info boards also - very historic.

Learn more about Shakespeare and his family, from baptism to grave, by visiting this lovely church. A very pleasant ten-minute walk by the lovely River Avon, the church is a must. There’s no admission charge, but they do ask for a £3 donation (£2 concessions) if you want to go right up to the burial places of Shaekspeare and his family.

My wife and I visited this beautiful church while on a couple of days away. We were investigating my family history. The staff in the church were very friendly and helpful telling about the history of the church as well as pointing me in the right direction to where to look next. Also the church was very beautiful and the fact that Shakespeare and his family are buried here makes it a very worthwhile place to visit.

This is the splendid church dominating Stratford’s river and Old Town where Shakespeare, his wife, daughter and son-in-law are all buried. We walked past it on a Monday evening as part of a journey along either side of the canal not realising its significance. There is a human barrier in the middle of the nave where leaflets are given out and visitors wishing to progress to the Shakespeare family graves are ‘invited’ to give a £3 ‘donation.’ I don’t object to making a contribution to the upkeep of this fine building, inspired by a slightly out of date photograph of Dame Judy Dench, but there should either be a compulsory admission charge or the option of a voluntary donation, not a sort of hybrid of the two.

Nice church worth a little visit when you're doing the touristy bit in Stratford upon Avon! Some very old graves to look at if you are in to that sort of thing. I must admit I am!
