This was the home of Shakespeare’s daughter Susanna and her husband Dr John Hall. The guide here was excellent and she gave a good introduction to the place and told stories about the house. She was very knowledgeable and could answer all our questions. We had planned to eat in the coffee shop on site but the staff seemed run... More

We purchased an advance 3-site ticket for the Shakespeare Birthplace, and were not disappointed. Hall's Croft is pretty, and worth seeing as part of the overall tour. Not really worth it as a stand-alone destination, though.

This was a great addition to our walk around Stratford. Best to buy a ticket in combination with the other Shakespeare attractions. It is also very close to the church of Shakespeare's grave.

Halls Croft has seen changes over the years but still retains much of its 17th century character. The house was bought by Shakespeare for his daughter and her husband (Dr Hall), which is a nice connection, but don't go expecting to see any of his (or their) possession. Enjoy it for what it is.

This fabulous building is off the beaten track, but well worth a visit en route to the Trinity Church. There is lots of ancient information and local news through the ages to read about and an excellent cafe with a super selection of cakes!

Our visit to Hall's Croft was amazing, the guide so informative on the history of the house & the family who lived there, namely Susannah Shakespeare & her husband Physician John Nash. Her enthusiasm was infectious, she spoke so well about her subject explaining how the different classes lived in the Tudor period & about the type of care John... More

The home of Shakespeare's daughter, Susanna, and her physician husband, John Hall, is more about their own lives and less about William Shakespeare. It is a great example of the home of a well-to-do family in Tudor England. See it as part of the Town Houses Pass or other joint passes available through the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

The house is an amazing historic example of the period in which Shakespear lived. Lots of authentic artefacts to view brought alive by a very informed guide. Gardens were a pleasure to walk in. A delightful afternoon visit all round. Close to the river just past the theatre...flat walking :)
