Visited for the first time. Staff were wonderful and the place has a really sense of history. A small charge to see Shakespeares grave, a price worth paying. Great little church

An amazing experience to visit the Bard's final resting place and see the records of his birth and death. The stain glass in the Holy Trinity is an added bonus.
