A view looking up at Holy Trinity church against a blue sky.

Holy Trinity parish church sits at the heart of Stratford’s ‘Old Town’, surrounded by a beautiful churchyard which is a haven of peace and tranquility for residents and visitors alike.

There has probably been a building on this site since the eighth century, but the church today is largely a rebuilding of the thirteenth century and later. Major additions in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries were partly funded by Hugh Clopton.

As Stratford upon Avon’s parish church, Holy Trinity is the place where generations of Stratfordians have been baptised, married and buried for centuries. It is also the place of Shakespeare’s grave - located in the chancel and visited by thousands of visitors a year.

The church is used daily for worship and welcomes visitors. It is free to enter, but there is a modest charge to see Shakespeare’s grave. Find out more at the Holy Trinity Church website.
