We got the full story ticket and we will be back. At every property we were warmly welcomed and the staff were all knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. It was a great experience and we will definately be back.

Perhaps we were unlucky with our timing, but the sheer number of visitors meant any possible enjoyment was tarnished. Despite it being half-term for many, there were numerous large school trips as well as large-ish international families/groups all clustered around and blocking all views and...More

If you like Shakespeare you need to pay his birthplace a visit. There is an interesting museum about Shakespeare and his work and his family which leads into the garden of his birthplace and a tour around the house. An extremely interesting visit, definitely worth...More

Interesting place with lots of history. Entrance fee to pay for this. Good photo opportunities. Right in the centre of Stratford upon Avon & close to other attractions, bars & shopping centre. Worth a visit.

The day we visited was pretty quiet, so it was nice to walk around at ease and read all the information provided. There were also some school children doing a presentation, which was also nice. Certainly worth a look around this very historic house !

This was an interesting place but personally I didn’t find it the most entertaining, it was nice to see the old house and learn about the history of his family and who lived where.

Yes they are valid for one year. The tickets will be printed with your name on it, so it's non transferable, and if you buy the full ticket it will allow you entry to all five of the Shakespeare venues: Shakespeares... More
