Definitely worth a visit. The original 16th century wall paintings are fascinating and there are more being exposed as funding is being raised. Saw a great concert there too. Duo Piccolo e Grande played Italian baroque sonatas. Lovely experience

With all the excitement about William Shakespeare, the many houses to visit at large expense, and long cues, this is a really and truly hidden gem of the town. Try not to miss this little church, which is right besides Shakespeare's non-existent "New House". You...More
