As a doctor and someone who loves Shakespeare, this was a must-see for me. But it's an interesting look at another aspect of Shakespeare's life and family and does a good job painting a picture of life in Shakespeare's times. Has some lovely furniture and items from the 17th century, some interesting exhibits about 17th century medicine, and is beautiful... More

Our last Shakespeare house of the day it was still worth visiting as it was a bigger house with lots to look at. It also had a garden which we missed due to the rain.

We visited this as it was part of a three-property ticket we purchased. We visited the birthplace of Shakespeare plus this property and one other, This used to be the home of Shakespeare's Daughter. It was hard to find as is a few minutes walk out of town and we didn't think it was well signposted. However it was lovely... More

You see how a wealthy physician lived in Shakespeare's time. Lovely garden, and an area set aside for exhibition (including kids' activities).

We visited Shakespeare's Birthplace 1st and purchased the package tour that allowed us to visit Hall's Croft as well. What made this worth while was the people who shared their knowledge and passion for the history of Shakespeare during this tour...definitely worthy of your visit to Hall's Croft! :-)

An enjoyable tour of this lovely old house. The old Elizabethan furnishings and floors, some things were renewed by the Victorians supposedly were a treat.

Not the most famous of the Shakespeare properties but well worth a visit. Beautifully restored with useful information sheets to carry on the tour. Cafe is also excellent.

Anyone related to Shakespeare seems to get a mention in Stratford Upon Avon. This house belonged to his daughter and her husband, a doctor. It shows how well to do she was but leaves some background information out. I didn't get to know the inhabitants at this house but it was still exceedingly interesting and beautifully restored. It is one... More
