Holy Trinity Church

Holy Trinity, Stratford, on the banks of the River Avon, is probably England's most-visited Parish Church. As well as being a thriving Parish church, it receives many thousands of visitors each year on account of the fact that William Shakespeare was baptized here, served as a lay rector of the church, and is buried in the chancel. Holy Trinity Church in its garden setting by the river Avon remains very much as it was in William Shakespeare's day.


The chancel is the resting place of William Shakespeare, his wife Anne, his daughter Susannah and son in law John Hall, along with Thomas Nash who married William's grand-daughter. Above the grave is the memorial to Shakespeare sculptured by Gerard Johnson within a few years of the playwright's death.
