We were only here for a short time and didn't see everything, but what we saw was amazing. The garden was beautiful. As we bought the 'whole story' ticket we were a bit tired by the end of the day, an... more »
Unfortunately the house no longer exists but the guide was able to explain very clearly what it would have looked like more »
That is the place where Shakespeare's house stayed in that time, and where he moved to start his own family. Unfortunately there is no house any more and its story is interesting, we can learn a lot about it here. The back garden is beautiful and at the entrance we can find different modern arts related to this place or the history.#Inside of the building there is a small exhibition and we can listen to the member of staff who gives us a nice, well detailed presentation about the house and the writer's life. That was worth to listen to as I learned a lot new things. If we buy a full story ticket, we can visit all the 5 places related to Shakespeare and tickets are valid for 1 year.
Very interesting. I enjoyed the speech Phil gave. Lots of energy. The place is very well kept and clean. Guides are enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
