Shakespeare’s Grave

Holy Trinity Church

‘Curst be he that moves my bones’, is part of the inscription at Shakespeare’s Grave in Stratford’s Holy Trinity Church. The church has the tall spire you see along the River Avon, beyond the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) theatres.

The church is said to have been Shakespeare’s place of worship and his wife and daughter are buried beside him. There’s also a bust of Shakespeare and many other features, including 26 misericords, medieval carved wooden ledges beneath folding church seats, designed for support when the seats were up.
