This was our first stop on the Shakespeare trail (I imagine it is for most people) and we were a little underwhelmed. First off, we bought our multi ticket from the information centre. The lady their told us it is cheaper to buy from them...More
Of course this is one of the centres of Western culture. The queue for entry goes on literally for ever. And then without ever being at all disappointing, it is simple, understated, soon done. Of course it's a small place; although John Shakespeare was big...More
Entrance fee is high, 17 pounds for an hour tour.. quite interesting to have actors around in the house and tell about the stories at that time, the full story ticket will definitely offer better value.
The facade is stunning enough, but get inside and soak up the Bard . There is no point coming to Stratford and passing this gem by.
You get a warm greeting when you walk in. One thing you notice about Shakespeare's buildings, there are loads...More

We started at Birthplace as opens st 10.00 and took about an hour for visit as small museum attached. We then walked to New Place (10 min), then Halls Croft (5 min). Worth then popping into Trinity Church (5 min) as he is buried here but not on ticket so they ask £3 each voluntary contribution. These are all 30 min to hour to look around. Anne Hathaway cottage is then a mile walk (20 min) or you can drive as loads of parking. I think it’s the nicest bit. We did all of them same day and still had time to visit shops on high street. We fix farm on the next day as more to do there especially for children. Make sure you buy on line ticket for all houses even if you do not do farm as big saving
