Interesting historical site, especially if you are a fan of Shakespeare's. There are actors quoting passages from works. Staff in costume to explain items in home and information about life at the time.

We bought a ticket that got us into several of the Shakespeare attractions, they are all within walking distance except Anne Hathaways cottage and the Farm
