Interesting church

Worth visiting, every day someone reads a passage from the bible, free to get in but you need to lay £3 to get to the gravestone. Friendly team there, full of interesting facts

3 quid to visit the grave (Please Gift-Aid it too). All the graves outwith the money collector can be freely visited for free. What do you get for the 3 quid? Take a photo to add to those already available online (the online ones will probably be better anyway given lighting conditions). Just enjoy his writings if that's your thing.

The church is open for access although a small charge is made to visit the chancel where the tombs of Shakespeare and his family are located. This is well worth paying as it helps to maintain the building. The church is immaculate and the history is presented without undo commercialism. It is moving to imagine it in Shakespeare's time and... More

We took a walk to the church as it is just a beautiful building that you have to visit each time you go to Stratford. Lots of reading material that tells you all about the church and you can happily sit in quiet and reflect. Nice to pop a few pounds into the donations box as well.

It is easy to spend about an hour wandering around this beautiful building. The central part of this church dates back to 1210. While most people would come here to see Shakespeare's grave (as we did) the church and surrounds are worth a visit on their own. There is a charge of 3 pounds to go into the chancel where... More
