A view of the medieval 'Doom' painting inside the Guild Chapel, Stratford upon Avon.

The Guild Chapel is located at the corner of Chapel Lane and Church Street. This site has been connected with the guild of the Holy Cross since the thirteenth century.

Today, the Chapel consists of a chancel and nave with a tower and although the building was extensively restored in the 1950s, it preserves much of Hugh Clopton’s legacy, from heraldic carvings to surviving paintings, some of which have been recently restored and others which are still hidden behind panelling.

Today, the Guild Chapel is part of the Guild Estate, maintained by Stratford Town Trust, supported by the Friends of the Guild Chapel and the Guild Chapel volunteers. It is regularly used for worship, especially by the King Edward VI Grammar School.

The Chapel is usually open and free to enter. Do come inside and experience its very special atmosphere and warm welcome.
