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.

Beautiful little church which holds the remains of the Bard and his family. Interesting and historical features all around so spend time to explore. Don't miss the Sanctuary Door Knocker as you enter the church...in ages past, those seeking sanctuary were guaranteed safety. Baptismal font...More

Full of tourists looking for the bard's grave. Expect to pay to go up to the grave inside the church.

A lovely experience to visit the tranquil church where Shakespeare and most of his family are buried. The churchyard is restful - a peaceful spot to walk & think. The church itself is beautiful & volunteers welcome visitors & answer questions.

This is the one Shakespeare site that hasn't fallen into the corny tourist trap category. A beautiful bold church, asking for a small donation to view the grave and those of the family. It has a genuine somber feel, more like you're paying your respects...More

After a lovely stroll we got to the church and the place was lovely. Set in a very old and rambling graveyard right near the river Avon. Slightly disappointed that the £4 suggested donation to see the tomb/grave was actually made to be compulsory by...More

Historic church with Shakespeare and his family all resting at peace together and amazing stained glass windows and antiquities. We were also lucky enough to be there whist the choir were practicing, stunningly beautiful. A must see.
