This gives a much better insight into Shakespeare's time than his Birthplace. There is a very interesting exhibition about medicine of this time too, as Shakespeake's son-in-law was a pharmasist. We most enjoyed the amazingly kept gardens on a hot summer's day. Thank you to...More

Simply loved this amazing house and the way it is set out. The paintings and furniture were very fine and the information and items regarding seventeenth century medicine were fascinating. The gardens were lovely, too, and having the Full Story ticket made it such good...More

This is luxurious living compared to Hathaway's Cottage and Shakespeare's birthplace. There are more windows and rooms with detailed, panelled furniture. The garden is bigger too with a vegetable patch, small flower beds and a lovely mulberry tree. Highly recommend the coffee shop which does...More

This house and gardens are very much worth visiting. We arrived at opening time and there were very few others there, so it was a casual walk through the house and gardens. Well worth seeing. It's very close to New Place and the Holy Trinity...More

We went as a couple and we both enjoyed it but a fairly tenuous link to Shakespeare - his daughter and husband (a doctor) did live here for a short time - so yes... As a piece of Tudor architecture a great visit, very quiet...More

If you are visiting Stratford to immerse yourself in all that is Shakespeare and his family life (and maybe a play too), then Hall's Croft is a must. The staff are in costume and, as always with such sites, extremely well informed and willing to...More

Out of all five Shakespeare Houses in and around Stratford, this has to be the best - small, unspoilt, centre of Stratford, no hordes of tourists, amazing oak furniture, great medical display, beautiful peaceful garden with a stunning kitchen garden under construction with a lovely...More

Halls Croft is several streets away from the birthplace, near the RSC and river, and just a short walk to Trinity Church and Shakespeare's crypt. So see them together to save time. The home is a little later than the the others on the tour...More

Out of the 3 town centre Shakespeare houses this was our favourite and most interesting. The intro talk by the staff was very good. Lovely gardens!

This property was owned by John Hall, who was married to Shakespeare's daughter, Susannah. It was a larger house than most of the properties of that time, showing the wealth of the family - there were more rooms with better quality furnishings. John Hall was...More
