We loved visiting Shakespeare's baptism and burial church (he married somewhere else). The guides were extremely friendly and generous with their time. Child-friendly!

A very interesting church and a nice walk from the city. The church is a resting place of Shakespeare and his family.

Pretty church with Shakespeare's grave (inside the church as we had to point out to the couple we watched searching the grounds). Also has benches over looking the river for a break from sightseeing. Lovely view from a boat on the river.
