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

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
