We found this simply by walking up the street to the chapel. What a marvelous piece of design. Found this building more in keeping with the times then the over commercialized Henley St.

This row of houses is close to the main sites of Stratford and can easily be included in any visit. They are very attractive and worth seeing

Perhaps the highlight of a street of many Tudor and other period buildings. A nightmare to photograph but worth the risk of standing in the middle of a busy street to do so.

I was told the Almshouses are one of the few structures in town during Shakespeare's life. They are next door to where he went to school so he walked by these every school day. They are still used as public housing (have undergone renovations inside)...More

Fascinating to see in such a well maintained state, great for a photo opportunity. A pity that cars are allowed to drive past these and the area around them.

These almshouses are in a wonderfully good state of repair and are picture perfect in every way. Just be careful of the tourists taking photos!!

What a landmark. Well kept old Tudor houses in the middle of town. They really make you feel that this is the real deal. Old England.

Lovely almshouses and great living history, as these houses are still occupied don't expect to walk around inside them. Are adjacent to the school. Lovely period property that is kept in a good state.

The original Almshouses were built in the 15th century and, thankfully, have been restored and maintained ever since, and are still used for the purpose for which they were designed. Appreciate then as you walk from the Grammar School to Hall's Croft.

Thank MedEngland
