Although William did not live here himself because it is the home of one of his daughters. Susanna was married to Doctor Hall hence the Hall's Croft. (who is buried with his wife in the Church). This is actually hundred yards or so from Holy Trinity church.

As with other attractions on the Shakespeare tour of Stratford-upon-Avon, this is a well organised and fascinating glimpse into the past. As usual, the guides are well briefed and bring the history of this home to life. Lovely garden that will be spectacular in Spring. For 2014 there is an excellent (and informative) exhibition covering the Warwickshire Regiments involvement in... More

A little away from the centre but maybe the most interesting & diverse interior of any of the Shakespeare-related buildings in town, with a small exhibition space (local WW1 history at the time of visiting) and large peaceful garden. The Jacobean home of Shakespeare’s daughter and grand-daughter. Contains very good local crafts shop The Arter.

We purchased a four house visit from the visitors centre and it was cheaper and well worth the money.

A nice example of an affluent household of the early 17thC, in this case Shakespeare's daughter's place. Well worth a look.

We had a delightful afternoon tea here consisting of a glass of sparkling wine, finger sandwiches, scones with cream and jam followed by chocolate brownies and coffee cake accompanied with either tea or coffee. The tea room is part of the Hall's Croft house which unfortunately, we did not have time to visit. The staff were very attentive and polite... More

Hall's Croft is a short walk from the centre and is on the way to Trinity church (where Shakespeare is buried) and the Avon River. A visit here will add a little more to your knowledge of Shakespeare's life and story as it is where one of his children's resided. The property is maintained to a great standard, with many... More
