Visited today the schoolroom where William Shakespeare went till the age of 14 we sat in the same classroom and felt how great this place and no wonder it is still functioning as a school. Simply fantastic.

We drove to Stratford-upon-Avon and so were a bit rushed. (We couldn't leave the car parked for too long.) The visit was very informative and the guides, unusually, knew what they were talking about. The school master especially was very good. Amazing to think the...More
