  • Really got a feel for how richer members of Shakespeare's family lived. There is a lot of beautifully carved furniture, including a very ornate high chair. The painted cloths on the wall are unusual t...  more »
  • without a doubt the best tour of the city, the more we loved to large and small. the price is expensive, it is worth your visit. also an incentive is to find children different mice rag "hidden" by the rooms and furniture. This very well set and meticulous, the attractions of the village is the most worthwhile

  • The guide we had was excellent. There is a very informative information sheet to accompany visitors too.
  • An interesting place to visit especially the exhibitions about medicine in the past. The gardens are beautiful and the cakes looked wonderful in the cafe.
  • Nicely maintained historic house of Dr. John Hall. The details told were very interesting
  • Part of Shakespeare Trust. Daughters home. Nice.
  • Hall's croft is so lovely. The garden is one of the most peaceful spots I've come across (of course it depends on how busy it is when you visit!). The house is creaking with history. Part of a great day out in Stratford-upon-Avon. Loads of history to absorb, lovely locations, beautiful town. If you're not into history and the greatest bard ever then maybe give it a miss as this is what Startford is all about.
