Many doubtless trek to see Shakespeare's grave but this church is evidently a vibrant place of worship with much more to commend it than just the wonderful choir and tombs.

Lovely church and setting and interesting history and Shakespeare connection but a pity it is such a tourist attraction and has expensive charges to see Shakespeare’s grave. Our visiting friends were put off visiting due to cost which was a shame, but couldn’t blame them.
