Visiting the Church

Welcome to Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon, one of England's most beautiful parish churches.

Holy Trinity is the church where William Shakespeare was baptised, where he worshipped and where he is buried. We are delighted to welcome the thousands of visitors who come each year to view his final resting place. We are also an active parish church serving the needs of local people. In fact, Christians have been worshipping God on this site for over 1,000 years.

Whether you live locally or are planning to visit us from far away, you are assured of a warm welcome! Our aim is that all who come to this beautiful and holy place will be moved by the atmosphere of prayer and praise, an echo of the millions of prayers offered here over the centuries. We hope that you will encounter the transforming love of God in this special place.

The Rev'd Patrick Taylor, Vicar.
