Excellent, good value for money. Really interesting but go for the full story ticket as you get to go to Shakespeares birthplace, his New place, Anne Hathaway's cottage, Hall's croft & Mary Ardens farm. The ticket lasts for 12 months.

Very quiet place. Shakesphere's paternal house was well maintained as was the garden outside. The walk along the street to the new house and other locations was lovely (though it was raining a bit). Could not visit Hathaway house due to time constrating, but will...More

This is an interesting place to visit. The home is well-explained by several characters (docents). A highlight of the garden is a stage where young actors are ready to perform a scene from any Shakespeare play on request.
