We loved learning about the life of John Hall. His Medical practice was interesting to learn about and his house was beautiful and something worth seeing. We really enjoyed it but buy a multi attraction ticket to save money.

Interesting to see this much more lavish home (for its time) which Shakespeare's daughter lived in compared to the homestead that her father was born and reared in. They obviously mixed in and socialised with relatively high social cirlces. Nice garden too.

Interesting house with all kinds of stories about Shakespeare's daughter and her Doctor husband plus where they lived. Wonderful gardens at the rear and a gift shop for your souvenirs. A small café for you to relax with a drink outside. Lots of things to see plus an excellent staff with plenty of information. The house itself is almost hidden... More

Lovely garden - make sure that after you have had a good look at the house you take your morning tea out to the garden. Great scones with clotted cream.

We wear slightly disappointed but maybe or expectations were too high. The literature we read prior to visit said there were Tudor medical items on display this sort of thing interests our daughter so this formed the main reason for our visit apart from some varying sizes of pestals and mortar that about summed up the medical side. The gardens... More

This is more of an upper-income Elizabethan home. Worth a stop if you love old houses lilke we do. Unlike some old home, visitors are allowed in every roo,.

The house itself was beautiful and you could see how people would have happily lived there. We were provided with some information about the rooms but not a lot. It was interesting to find out all about the people who were close to Shakespeare but I feel there could have been more information provided.
