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.
We only had a quick few hours visiting in the town as I was at a all day conference but wanted to see some of the iconic sites.
It had closed for visiting by the time we got there but really glad we could see...More

Visited today and pleasantly surprised to find it wasn’t busy! We spent a good couple of hours absorbed in everything Shakespeare here! Loved it! Started off in the Shakespeare Centre which was a good introduction before we walked through a lovely, colourful garden (for this...More
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.

We started at Birthplace as opens st 10.00 and took about an hour for visit as small museum attached. We then walked to New Place (10 min), then Halls Croft (5 min). Worth then popping into Trinity Church (5 min) as he is buried here but not on ticket so they ask £3 each voluntary contribution. These are all 30 min to hour to look around. Anne Hathaway cottage is then a mile walk (20 min) or you can drive as loads of parking. I think it’s the nicest bit. We did all of them same day and still had time to visit shops on high street. We fix farm on the next day as more to do there especially for children. Make sure you buy on line ticket for all houses even if you do not do farm as big saving
