Been to Stratford several times, somehow never been in the Guild chapel until now. It's got gorgeous medieval paintings on the wall, i don't think i've ever seen anything like it in a church before. They've been given a grant to restore them and by the looks of it what they've done so far is well worth it. It's right... More

Even though we often visit Stratford we had never stumbled across this before. Lots of historic connections including the now revealed wall paintings which had previously been concealed.

The person 'on duty' was very informative and made the visit worthwhile. There are many medieval wall paintings and a good information panels explaining when they were painted, what they depict and how they were covered up and eventually discovered. Worth a look. Voluntary donations.

The Guild Chapel is a little sacred place which located right inside the town's centre, only 15 minutes walking from Shakespeare's birth place. Couldn't forget the stained glass panels, beautiful flower bathtub and particular English architecture.

Worth a ten minute stop on your trip around Stratford. Has some detailed early wall paintings some of which are slightly creepy but fascinating.

We were walking toward it and was not sure if you could go in, but the door was open and you must have a look inside. Plenty to see and admire

At the time we visited this church, there was much restoration going on and scaffolding all over the place. However, we enjoyed it and the painstaking work the restorers were doing will be much appreciated. We enjoyed it though.

Lovely quaint little church in the heart of Stratford. Very picturesque and In my opinion nicer than the other church in the town. Well worth a look.
