Did not expect bare unfurnished rooms and just writing on the walls, what are they thinking of ?? Visiting the Shakespeare properties used to be wonderful

The Yorkshire lady who conducted the tour was wonderful to listen to and also her humour made the tour even more memorable. Sorry I cannot remember her name but I know she has worked in the town for many years and has a genuine passion for the history of her home and the Shakespeare/Hall family history.

Just a short walk from the birthplace of William Shakepeare, Hall's Croft is yet another house you can immerse yourself in history. Once the home of Shakepear's daughter and her doctor husband, this house reflects how they lived and worked, at his medical practice 400 years ago. Another great place to visit.

This was included in the town pass and is close to the cathedral where Shakespeare is buried, although you have to pay to see that, the hall is included in the town pass price. Staff are lovely and very informative. The gardens are lovely. Cafe is a bit overpriced though... Typical for an attraction.

This is the home of Shakespeare's daughter, who married a local doctor. It's a beautiful house and an interesting place to visit. It's very close to the church were Shakespeare and his family are buried.

This was included as part of our admission to Shakespeare's birthplace home. We really enjoyed seeing how Shakespeare's son-in-law, a doctor, practiced medicine with herbs and tinctures.

Went here as part of the 3 Shakespeare house package in town. This was my 2nd favourite after Shakespeare's birthplace. Nice to see a the house very similar to it was hundreds of years past, but still lacking in interesting facts or details about the Halls considering this is what it is sold on.

Thank you for your feedback. With the displayed items and clothing from the time of the Hall family, Hall’s Croft also has a fascinating more recent history, playing, as it did, a key part in Stratford society. I hope you enjoyed all aspects of the house, as well as the insight into Tudor life. We will be changing our exhibition... More
