Pocket Guide: Stratford-upon-Avon Guild Chapel Hotels

A remarkable medieval landmark that is one of the focal points of Stratford-upon-Avon, the Guild Chapel is adjacent to New Place, where William Shakespeare retired and spent his last days. It is within walking distance of several fantastic hotels and restaurants, and is a must-see for anyone interested in religious art.

History of the Guild Chapel

The Guild Chapel was completed in the late-13th Century and became an important meeting point for townsfolk by the 15th Century, when a new schoolhouse and almshouses were built nearby. The church fell into disrepair in later years, however, although it was carefully restored by the Friends of the Guild Chapel after the Second World War, who still care for the chapel today.

What to See at the Guild Chapel

The church has many impressive wall paintings, the most notable being a mural signifying the Day of Judgement, which is one of the largest of its kind in the country. The church also has many other elaborate artworks depicting key religious events, some of which were rediscovered in the late Georgian period after having been concealed in whitewash since the Reformation.

Other Attractions and Accommodation near the Guild Chapel

The Guild Chapel is just a short walk from the award-winning Falstaff's Experience, where you can learn about what life was like in Stratford-upon-Avon during the Tudor period. It's also just a few hundred metres from Holy Trinity Church, which is one of the most visited churches in the country, notable for being the location where Shakespeare was baptised in April 1564 and buried almost exactly 52 years later. This landmark is very close to the immaculate Macdonald Alveston Manor Hotel, which is perfect for special events like corporate getaways and romantic weekend breaks.

You can also visit the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, one of the finest venues in the country, which showcases the playwright's outstanding plays and benefited from a £113 million transformation between 2007 and 2010. Also nearby is the popular Ashorne Hill Conference Centre, near the pleasant regency town of Royal Leamington Spa, which offers excellent corporate hospitality and first-rate business facilities.
