Guild Chapel information
The Guild Chapel was founded in 1269 and is painted with motivational frescos showing the fate of the damned in the 15th century. It's only open to the public for services (10am Wednesday and noon on the first Saturday of the month April to September).
Next door is King Edward VI School , which Shakespeare almost certainly attended, housed in a vast timbered building that used to be the guildhall.
