  • A nice place to visit and see where, and how Shakespeare (and others, of course), was schooled. Definitely worth a look.
  • I would say it's mandatory to stop this chapel if visiting Stratford-upon-Avon. It only needs a few minutes to visit, and it is next to other (better advertised) sites. This would be a building from Shakespeare's childhood, and Shakespeare picked the house next-door to buy when he grew up. It would be useful to have a bit more history of this medieval chapel available when visiting. There are a lot of curious and interesting things inside, and it's a very pretty building.
  • A small chapel but worth going into for a short visit. Old building with historic, faded murals on the wall, a grand looking organ, and a lovely stained glass window.
  • Interesting structure with iconography from pre-reformation days
  • Old chapel still standing tall and proud
