This church was nice as far as churches go and you had to pay a £2.00 entry fee to see Shakespeares grave which was a little bit of a check as you have to pay for everything else and you seem to always be paying out

One of the nicest churches I've ever visited. The woodwork and stained glass windows were awe inspiring.

Holy Trinity Church on Stratford Upon Avon, being the last "home" of William Shakespear is a very special church and a must for everyone who visits the area. The surroundings of the church are also very interesting to explore as you will see really old graves (found one that had 1563 on it as a death date!). You can also learn lot of things by the signs in the church and the shop is lovely!

Having visited all the other attractions in town relating to William Shakespeare, we ended our trip to Stratford by seeing his burial place alongside those of his daughters and their husbands. Judging by the prime spot of his final resting place, you can't help but think Shakespeare must have been a "somebody" to the town even then! We didn't pay a fee to enter as we had already bought the combination ticket to see all the Shakespeare sites, which I can certainly recommend.

The day we were in Stratford-Upon-Avon was the 450th Birthday Celebration of William Shakespeare. We visited this beautiful church were Shakespeare and several members of his family are buried. On this particular day flowers covered the altar area of the church as people paid their respects to the Bard. There is a bust of Shakespeare on the wall to the left of the altar and resting in his hand is one of his actual quills used to write many of his great works. I thought this was just fascinating!
