Interesting place with lots of history. Entrance fee to pay for this. Good photo opportunities. Right in the centre of Stratford upon Avon & close to other attractions, bars & shopping centre. Worth a visit.

The day we visited was pretty quiet, so it was nice to walk around at ease and read all the information provided. There were also some school children doing a presentation, which was also nice. Certainly worth a look around this very historic house !

This was an interesting place but personally I didn’t find it the most entertaining, it was nice to see the old house and learn about the history of his family and who lived where.

Visited on a cold day in January and was very impressed by the fantastic guides especially Scott who was enthusiastic and a fount of knowledge about the building. It is worth buying the multi site ticket.

I was disappointed with the visit here. The house is mildly interesting, and the staff in each room are really good. But at the end of the day, it's just a 16th century house (of which there are thousands in England). The exhibition is hugely...More
