Thankfully I had free entry to this attraction as part of a conference pass, but had I paid the £14 to get in I'd have felt a little short-changed. You are moved through a series of 'holding pens' on your way in, during which you are trapped between a series of 'automatically opening' doors and played a few presentations (I think it was 3 or 4). Being strapped for time, this was a bit frustrating. Presumably this is to control the flow of visitors in to the house itself, but I felt like cattle. The house itself is nice and the tour guides were friendly and informative, but it's only a few rooms and while charming there's not much space, especially when busy. The highlight was the gardens - rose bushes were all in bloom during my visit which was wonderful. Then a heartily-stocked gift shop which is great for any Shakespeare fan, but free to get in from the street.
