The church is the resting place of the most famous writer of all time. And it is beautiful. Right on the shores of a river. With a high steeple. A great spot.

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.

I have to say, considering the town is promoted as Shakespeare’s hometown I thought his testing place would have been more grand. The church is beautiful and open 365 days a year. Touring the church is free but to enter his resting place it costs...More

A must visit sight, well kept, although it was undergoing restoration work. Lovely gardens, and on the banks of river Avon. This is the church where Shakespeare was baptized and buried.
