We bought the Full Story ticket which gave us entry to the most popular tourist attractions in Stratford upon Avon. Great savings and a must if visiting for the first time! We easily managed to get round them all in a day.

Very enjoyable. Learned enough for my interest and my daughters. We both enjoyed the sonnet performance in the garden too.

Well worth a visit. Wonderfully preserved and renovated. It’s hard to imagine a trip to Stratford upon Avon without seeing where the Master himself was born. A fascinating history lesson, and good value

Really interesting museum and house. Great to see how it really looks in each room. Good Shakespeare entertainment outside too. Recommend purchasing the full package on line beforehand (£20 each for the 5 main Shakespeare attractions on line)

I took my teenage daughters to the birthplace museum. We found it very informative. It was interesting walking through the gardens and his early home. The place was busy but not overwhelming. The shop had lots of Shakespeare memorabilia. It is in a very pretty...More
