Visited as part of the stratford town walk with john. Very interesting and informative well worth the £1 fee to enter area of the grave.

Shakespeare's burial place along with most of his family. Plus his baptismal place (probably!) A must visit if you're doing the shakespeare trail in Stratford

The church of the Holy Trinity in Stratford was part of a lap discovering Shakespeare’s birthplace. There is a lot in common with similar edifices in the Cotswold environs, but also much to distinguish it for its particularities: a pleasant walk around its approaches, its external unsullied gothic manner, its graveyards in the shade of the lush foliage overhead, the flowers adorning both the paths and the arched doorways. As you walk inside you already know what makes this church unique, the celebrity status of marking Shakespeare’s final resting place, sets it apart from other parish churches of the epoch. The tablets also mark the graves of the Shakespeare’s familials, but his frowning likeness is immortalised in a reverential effigy in the chancel. The windows in the gothic arches in the nave are adorned with beautiful stained glass, filtering the light into a vibrant glow around. This part of the church is predictably always thronged with people as hundreds of visitors visit the bard’s grave every year.

The church would be well worth a visit even without Shakespeare's grave. It looks absolutely stunning!
