I was there listening to a guy telling the story of hall's croft. For me this is a very interesting part of "just looking" the house. I love the history and now i know why it called croft

alongside the rest of the sites owned by Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust this is well worth a visit. From the ancient, battered mulberry tree in the garden to the exhibition on the 10 most popular characters to the interest in the building itself this is very interesting and as it's midway between Nash's House and Trinity Church there's no excuse not...

Thought the tickets were quite expensive when we first bought them, but we did get our moneys worth and visited some buildings more than once on this trip.
