The Guild Chapel is a little sacred place which located right inside the town's centre, only 15 minutes walking from Shakespeare's birth place. Couldn't forget the stained glass panels, beautiful flower bathtub and particular English architecture.

Worth a ten minute stop on your trip around Stratford. Has some detailed early wall paintings some of which are slightly creepy but fascinating.

We were walking toward it and was not sure if you could go in, but the door was open and you must have a look inside. Plenty to see and admire

At the time we visited this church, there was much restoration going on and scaffolding all over the place. However, we enjoyed it and the painstaking work the restorers were doing will be much appreciated. We enjoyed it though.

Lovely quaint little church in the heart of Stratford. Very picturesque and In my opinion nicer than the other church in the town. Well worth a look.

Having spent the day sight seeing this was the last place we visited. There is a lot of work needed here and they need help to do it. One thing would be a simple guide. The town's guilds and aldermen should get themselves organised to get this chapel done up

Do visit if you are in Stratford. Read the interpretation boards and then look at what they have discovered and are still discovering. If it is quiet take a while to sit and contemplate as very peaceful place.Worth combining this with a visit to the Guildhall & School.

We had never been in this church before and were fascinated by the restoration work being done on the wall paintings. A real treasure!

Definitely worth looking into. FREE to go into. Volunteers offering lots of useful information about the building, architecture and painting, which are being renovated.
