This is more than just the history of the Shakespeare family but an insight to Tudor family life and the history of the plague and medicine. The staff here are very willing to share their knowledge with you. The church where the Shakespeare family are buried is only a 3 minute walk away.

This was the third of Shakespeare's houses we went visited, but the most informative. The guide upstairs answered all our questions and more. We learnt where phrases like feeling ropey and sleep tight came from as well as learning about the architecture of the house, the Shakespeare family tree and about Stratford. Fascinating

It is a lovely house and they show the whole history and not just the Shakespeare link. Lovely furniture from various time periods.

We started our "grand tour" of the Shakespeare sites in Stratford-upon-Avon here and it was a good choice. The staff were brilliant! Chap called Andrew sold us our tickets and then gave us a great potted history of the Shakespeare family. My only minor concern in recommending visiting this and the other sites is that we went "out of season"... More

Unfortunately we arrived 20 minutes too late and it had closed. But all was not lost, a wonderful lady exiting the staff door stopped in her own time and gave our group a very interesting talk for about 10 minuets. We will definitely return to the Galls Crift for a good look.

You really get the feeling this was a home, I'd live there now given half a chance. The staff were very informative even letting us in early as it was raining outside. It has a good shop and cafe.

The house itself is fairly small but offers you a look into types of bedrooms and the characters associated with the house. Well worth a look! The shop itself is very different from the other shakespeare shops as it offers various quirky things made by local artists.
