Located on the banks of River Avon, this is considered one of England's most-visited Parish Churches and the site where William Shakespeare was baptized in 1564 and buried in 1616. In addition to Shakespeare's grave the 800 year-old church has some...more
This church is profiteering from its history. My partner and I went to have a look around and the church charged £3 EACH to go and view Shakespeare’s grave in the Chancel. Now, this was supposed to be a suggested donation but since we were...More
My husband and I were visiting Stratford upon Avon and wanted to visit the grave of the famous Bard. The church and churchyard itself is nice to walk around; we always feel very humbled when visiting places like this.
There is information inside the church...More
We went to this historic church in the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon after visiting the Shakespeare’s Birthplace. In the Holy Trinity Church was Shakespeare’s baptised, where he worshipped and where he is burried. On this site there has been a church since at least 731 when...More
The church is a functioning parish church which is good, but they have produced well-designed posters to explain the link to Shakespeare (he was baptised, & buried there). Interesting to see the birth & death entries and the tombstones & font. There is an optional...More
If you are one for walking then give this place a go. If not, I personally wouldn’t bother. Free entry to the church itself. Very pretty and grand. Lovely walk along the river to get here, however somewhat out of the way. £3 per adult...More
It is a pleasant walk to this fine church. It would be worth visiting even if Shakespeare was not buried here. One pays a small fee to enter the part of the church containing his grave. Worth a visit and not as crowded as much...More

One review said they could take photos but there was a charge and they couldn't remember how much.. We'll... The charge was £3 per person and we had unlimited time to explore and take photos.. As historical attractions go 3 pounds for an afternoon being impressed is great value.. I especially liked asking the guide why the carvings looked demonic and outlandish and she laughed and said "well, the water wasn't drinkable so the craftsmen / woman were drinking 8 pints a day while working on the church... That explains it..!! And they call that the dark ages lol..!!!
