    We visited last week (7/8/17) with our young daughter and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. The lesson with the master had to be one of the highlights. We were taught some Latin and took part in a littl...  more »

    Master Jenkins alone is well worth the visit, the Schoolroom offers an insight into the schooling during Shakespeare's times and is very interesting. Test your hand at quill writing or just wander the...  more »

  • Very interesting tour, I personally preferred to visit Shakespeare's Schoolroom & Guildhall rather than his house as you'll find a lot of useful information about Shakespeare's childhood years and how schools functioned in those times. The short films you are presented here are well done and provide insight to Shakespeare's intellectual upbringing.
  • Fascinating and less well-known of the sights. Super information shard by experts on the subject, often ex pupils makes for a very personalised and passionate tour. Leave enough time for their detailed explanations. (At least 80 minutes) Excellent!
  • It was nice having a Latin lesson and write in old style. You can also dress yourself with vintage clothes and take pictures where Shakespeare was supposed to be.
  • Brilliant and really interesting staff are knowledgeable and very helpful brilliant with children and are keen to impart their knowledge
  • Brilliant place to visit. The volunteer guides are really approachable and make the visit informative and fun without giving too much information which suits both adults and children. Lots of things for the younger visitors to try in the classroom. When we arrived we were told the entry fee was payable when you leave and you can pay whatever you felt the visit was worth. Fantastic place, to which I can strongly recommend a visit.
