Home - Guild Chapel Stratford-upon-Avon

Standing on the corner of Church Street and Chapel Lane, the Guild Chapel is one of Stratford-upon-Avon’s most iconic and important historic buildings.

Yet it hides a secret.

What’s been (and continues to be) uncovered is one of the rarest series of medieval wall paintings in all of Europe.

Preserved in incredible detail under layers of limewash, get up close to the deathly images Shakespeare’s father was ordered to cover up in the 16th Century following the Reformation.
