Not far from the centre and near Shakespeare's grave. Adds a bit more to Shakespeare's story and shows a lot about the buildings of the time.

On an early May day, we parked on the street to walk a short ditance to this and Holy Trinity Church. Our entry to the lovely Jacobean house was included in our value-packed Five House Pass. It was the home of Shakespeare's daughter Susanna and her husband Dr. John Hall and it's full of some really gorgeous 16th century furniture... More

An excellent overview of the history of the house was given by a guide before we took our time to explore this lovely piece of history. The gardens are beautiful.

A good option for a lunch that isn't too expensive. A small selection of sandwiches and cakes, with good coffee and tea. Solid and reliable each time I have gone. Quiet enough for reasonable conversations. An especially nice option for lunch if you work at that end of town.

But it looks false somehow. As an architect and general contractor I know how easy it is to make a building 'look' older than it really is, and this place 'looks older' than it really is. I'd love to tear parts of it down and get a real look at it's framing. I bet they won't allow that ! It... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. Hall’s Croft was built in 1613. As with many elderly structures, it has required some repairs and conservation work over the years. That being said, I am delighted to be able say that 80% of the building you see today is in fact original. The team at Hall’s Croft are passionate about the... More

Tour guides ostensibly disinclined to answer further questions unless absolutely necessary. Also told contradictory information by tour guides on two occasions. Very little to see or do here. Staff rude and judgemental, cafe overpriced.

This is where Shakespeare's son-in-law practiced his medicine. Very informative... Make sure you visit the gardens where he raised the herbs he used to heal people.

One again, this had very interesting exhibits and very helpful, friendly guides, which made our visit pleasant. There were activities for kids to do in the house, which was a great idea, to involve everyone in the visit to this historic house. Gorgeous gardens too.

This was the second of three homes that we visited while in Stratford. Although we did enjoy our visit, I must admit that we felt Shakespeare's birthplace and Anne Hathaway's cottage were a bit more interesting. This is a great place to visit with kids because they had activities for them to keep busy while touring the home. The tour... More
