Full of chavs, attending a wedding. Didnt stay long, was much happier stood on the pavement outside looking in!
Rarely open to the public but apparently due to be permanently so from 2014 as part of the 450th celebrations. The Guildhall not only contains the beautiful "Big School" where Shakepeare was educated but is also the building where his father, John Shakespeare, held office as Bailiff (Mayor) in 1568. The Lower Guildhall is where a young Shakespeare would have... More
Only open for a few days each year so take the opportunity if it arises. Shown around by the pupils and very interesting to see the actual schoolroom and associated library areas. Sit in the teacher's seat - it's a great feeling knowing that Shakespeare once looked at that spot.
We loved being shown round the school by two enthusiastic pupils who had taken time out from their Easter holidays to share their knowledge with us.

Shakespeare's School, King Edward VI Grammar School has a lovely building and when you walk past the gates under Shakespeare's old classroom you think that the children who are currently being educated there are so privilaged being able to go to Shakespeare's School and the students even get to be taught in Shakespeare's old classroom, Overall brilliant building. Lovely architecture!
