Tour & Group Bookings

We are now open and able to take group bookings for groups who are visiting Holy Trinity Church and especially the grave of William Shakespeare for visits from 1st March 2021. There is a link at the bottom of this page which will take you to our booking platform which is embedded in this website. As a result we will not be taking bookings by phone or email.  Bookings will need to be paid for at the point of booking in order to be confirmed and we will no longer be able to take vouchers and invoice tour companies restrospectively. 

There are 30 minute slots for booked groups and these will be available before and after our core opening hours but not during our core hours.

Our core opening hours for the period to 1st March are :

Monday to Friday        11.00 - 13.00

Saturday                      11.00 - 13.00 & 14.00 - 16.00

We currently have a one way route around the church and with current regulations in the UK people have to remain socially distanced, wear face coverings and record their contact details which we retain for 21 days as part of the Covid Track & Trace programme. 

We will maintain the one way system and also control the flow of people into the church at any one time.  

Unbooked groups will be fed into the flow of the general public a few at a time during our core opening times and we will actively manage the total number of people in the church at any one time (also dependent on any regulations in force at any given time) so that everyone has the opportunity to experience Holy Trinity as an active parish church as well as being host to William Shakespeare’s Grave.


Booked groups will be charged and the charges including VAT will be :


Group size

Up to 20 people                 £70

Up to 40 people               £130

Up to 60 people               £190


The above will apply to all groups and tours, except

UK schools will book a slot and pay £1.20p per child at the time of booking
