It is what it says on the tin. It is a chapel, rows of chorister stalls and little else. Some stained glass, and it is free.

In Stratford it's not difficult to find things to see, as it is an old, lovely but small little town. This chapel is just a step away from Shakespeare's new place, exactly on the corner. Nice architecture and though it is not a church, just...More

Inspiring building inside and out. We were lucky enough that a couple of scholars were practicing on the organ, completing the ambience. Well worth a visit.

There since 1269 AD, the chapel has quite a history and one of Stratford-upon-Avon's most important historic buildings. It actually stands across the street from where Shakespeare's final home stood and where he died. It is a building that would have been very familiar to...More

A very pretty chapel in the centre of a pretty town. It is well kept and there is clearly a lot of history surrounding this. I didn't have to pay to enter, and to be honest it's not worth paying anything to go in, however...More

This is a quick stop. Step into the small chapel, and you'll see a simple but beautiful space. It's next door to Shakespeare's classroom.

I am sure many people pass this church without looking inside but it has some unique wall murals which were hidden or defaced in the attacks on Catholicism. If visiting the schoolroom next door do pop in and enjoy the peace for a few minutes.

Visited the Chapel while walking around Stratford, it is a lovely little place next to Shakespeares house. There is plenty of history to read upon and some beautiful wall painting which have been referbished, a good place to pop in and have a look around.
