We were quite underwhelmed with Shakespeares birthplace. There was too much modern art in the first part of the museum. My friend does not speak English well and so struggled to understand what most of the displays were about. There were very few actual artefacts....More

Museum and home are available for a one fee tour. Located on a street with quaint shops and friendly locals. Friendly tour staff and a picturesque village ambiance. Worth the trip for fans of the Arts.
Got to learn more about Shakespeare that I did not know (or maybe was taught way back in school and forgot). The docents in the house itself were vey helpful and informative. About the pricing that others have mentioned - must get the multi-house package....More
I visited Shakespeare's Birthplace yesterday and was excited by the opportunity to explore the inside of his lovely and well preserved homestead. Externally it is impressive and the exposed waddle and daub panel is interesting to view. I was immediately surprised to see a modern...More

I am sorry to hear that your visit to Shakespeare's Birthplace did not meet your expectations.
It is true that we do not have any of the original furnishings of the house from when Shakespeare lived there, they were not preserved in Shakespeare's time, and...More
An interesting insight into the life of Shakespeare and I found things out that I never knew. The actors and helpers in there were good. It was quite expensive though and it would be value if you were visiting all the Shakespeare locations but to...More

Definitely worth visiting- especially if you are lucky enough to catch the actors in the garden who are happy to take requests to recite sonnets from any plays! Fantastic! They were so good! Lots to see and the staff are really knowledgeable.

We started at Birthplace as opens st 10.00 and took about an hour for visit as small museum attached. We then walked to New Place (10 min), then Halls Croft (5 min). Worth then popping into Trinity Church (5 min) as he is buried here but not on ticket so they ask £3 each voluntary contribution. These are all 30 min to hour to look around. Anne Hathaway cottage is then a mile walk (20 min) or you can drive as loads of parking. I think it’s the nicest bit. We did all of them same day and still had time to visit shops on high street. We fix farm on the next day as more to do there especially for children. Make sure you buy on line ticket for all houses even if you do not do farm as big saving
