A very interesting place with people in period costumes giving you information but the highlight was certainly the actors in the garden who would perform parts of your favourite Shakespearean play on request. Absolutely excellent.

The house is but a small part of what there is to see. There is now a wonderful exhibition wing as well as delightful actors in the back garden giving excerpts from Shakespeare's plays. Must See

Shakespeare's birthplace is well set up for visitors, with both modern interpretive components and well-preserved period rooms with great atmosphere. It was very interesting to learn more about Shakespeare and his family, and the place they had in the society of the day.
