As Stratford-upon-Avon is close to the M40, M42 and M6 motorway networks, Holy Trinity Church is easily reached from London, the Midlands and the North. Old Town is adjacent to Stratford town centre and is within easy walking distance. There are several pay and display car parks within the town centre, or you may wish to try the Park and Ride which is signposted from the A46.
Entry to Holy Trinity church is free, but to keep the church open seven days a week for visitors, pilgrims and worshippers, we ask people who want to visit Shakespeare's grave to pay £2 (Concessions £1, Students 50p).
The opening hours below are always subject to the demands of a busy parish. Please note that it quite often needs to close at fairly short notice (eg for funerals). On the day concerned, these times are always listed on the church notice board in the churchyard.
Holy Trinity Church does not open for visitors on Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
Last admission is 20 minutes before closing.
April to September
March and October
November to February
The main entrance to the church is via one-step but a ramp is available which church staff will put down for your convenience if required.
The only steps inside the building are to the Quiet Room, which is up a spiral staircase.
Assistance Dogs are allowed in the church.
Hearing: an induction loop is in operation during services.
Larger print: service books are available for most services with an optional large print hymn book for Evensong.
There are none at the church but an accessible toilet, for which a Radar key is required, and general toilets can be found in the nearby Theatre Gardens. They are approximately 200m away and are open in daylight hours only.
A well-stocked gift shop is situated at the back of Holy Trinity Church. The profits go towards the upkeep and maintenance of the building, as well as Holy Trinity's work in the local community. The gift shop is usually open when the building is open.
From the Spring Holiday in late May to the late summer weekend in August, the Holy Trinity Hospitality Team serves afternoon tea to visitors on Saturdays and Sundays. Fresh, fair-trade and homemade, their delicious refreshments win high praise from all who partake.
