Located on the banks of River Avon, this is considered one of England's most-visited Parish Churches and the site where William Shakespeare was baptized in 1564 and buried in 1616. In addition to Shakespeare's grave the 800 year-old church has some...more

Last here about ten years ago but nevertheless this turned out to be quite a unique experience as one could feel the history contained within these walls.
Certainly worth a visit and an hour of your time if in Stratford.
Every time I visit Stratford I visit the church. It is the final resting place of William Shakespeare and it’s a lovely walk along the River Avon to reach it. The churchyard is peaceful with views across the river. I sat on a bench and...More
You don't have to be religious to appreciate a church like the Holy Trinity.

One review said they could take photos but there was a charge and they couldn't remember how much.. We'll... The charge was £3 per person and we had unlimited time to explore and take photos..

That explains it..!! And they call that the dark ages lol..!!!
