This was the first house we visited. It's beautiful with a lovely garden. There is a coffee shop so you can sit outside and take in the atmosphere. Hope to come back as 5 house pass tickets valid for a year.

This home is well preserved. We went to Shakespeare's Birthplace first and the higher status and wealth were apparent. They had some lovely pieces. The cafe had nice items and a quiet seating area. It was worth purchasing the 3 house pack. We would have had brain overload if we tried to do all 5.

We visited first thing in the morning and it was an absolute oasis. The house was interesting but for me the main appeal was the fantastic exhibition about Stratford and WWI that is currently upstairs. I was not aware of this beforehand and will confess to feeling a touch of World War theme fatigue as one or other seems to... More

We did not go to Hall’s Croft as it was late afternoon that we arrived but we were in time for some afternoon tea at its café. A hidden treasure which is quiet yet served pretty decent cakes and soup. I had the Tudor Potage of the day with bread and butter and I have to say it’s good. I... More

Came here to visit halls croft as we had a free 1 year pass which enables you to come back for free a lovely house and gardens to visit the cafe was rather expensive though.

In my opinion, this was the most interesting venue on the whole Shakespeare tour circuit. The building was stacked with original material, knowledgeable guides and much more. The entertainment continue into the gardens, which asides from being incredibly beautiful, held a pleasant surprise. There were actors in the gardens literally reciting scenes from Shakespeare as requested by the visitors. Upon... More

Hall's Croft is Shakespeare's daughter's house.It is well appointed, with furniture and artwork that invited one to pause and imagine life in her time. I loved the Jacobean painting of a family at the dining room table-fascinating peek back in time. This is a beautiful old home. You can buy a pass that includes 3 of the Shakespeare houses, including... More

Hall's Croft is the beautifully furnished Jacobean home of Shakespeare's daughter Susanna and her husband Dr John Hall. It comprises a walled garden, WW1 exhibition, a gift shop and a small café. Once again it is a must if you are visiting Stratford and included in the price when visiting Shakespeare's Birthplace !

Shakespeare's daughter and son-in-law lived here, and it is well worth a visit as part of the five-house tour. One terrific, money-saving way to see this and the other four Shakespeare house sites is to get on the hop-on, hop-off tour bus at any of its 11 stops and buy an all-day bus ticket and a five-house voucher. The Anne... More

I really enjoyed visiting this cottage and recommend anyone going the Stratford to visit. The staff were very enthusiastic and informative, they enjoyed telling us about the history of each room and the family that live there. This comes under the town ticket which covers Shakespeare's birthplace and New place (opening soon) so you can see them all, this was... More
