Holy Trinity Church

The mellow, honey-coloured stonework of Holy Trinity Church dates from the 13th century. Enhanced by its riverside setting, the church's dignified proportions are the result of several centuries of chopping and changing, culminating with the replacement of the wooden spire with today's stone version in 1763.
Both William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway are buried here, inside the chancel, his remains overseen by a plaque and effigy added seven years after his death.
This ancient church provides a moment of calm away from the bustle of the town. In the shop you can buy a copy of the Magna Carta on a roll in a tube in both authentic Latin text and English translation.
