We visited on a Pass for the three townhouses. Though the pass was quite expensive the centre did provide lots of interest. It was packed with foreign tourists though and so overly busy.

Fantastic to see the history being kept. Great buildings to look at and statues. Interesting museum on Henley Street but closed too early. Good selection of shops on the street too. A must to visit.

A very good place to start a day in Stratford. Plenty of information here and you can buy tickets for the main places of interest. Tickets for all other places last -2 months. Very friendly and full of advice.

The primary attraction to the center is the tour of Shakespeare's childhood home. There were schoo children visiting that day serving as guest docents. It was really fun. Like most places you exit through the gift shop which had lots of books and trinkets.

Well laid out centre. The birthplace building is amazing. The different buildings are dotted around the town but an easy walk to all. All in all an interesting look into the private world of Shakespeare & his family.
