Making the most of a morning in Stratford-upon-Avon

Hello, need helpful advice for spending only a few hours in Stratford-upon-Avon in a few weeks: 3 maybe 4 hours. We would like to stay longer, but cannot. Arriving late afternoon. Tickets to the theatre, staying overnight, and we have to leave early afternoon the next day. Looking for recommendations to make the most of our time on the morning before we leave. (Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Shakespeare’s Birthplace seem to be a must.) Can one reasonably have a nice visit to those and other places in that tight timeframe, or should one choose one place and take the time to appreciate it to make it worthwhile? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you could easily visit both the Birthplace and Anne Hathaway's Cottage in that time.

However, if the weather is good, I would recommend extending your visit to Anne Hathaway's Cottage to pass some time in the very pleasant gardens. You could still fit in a rapid tour of the Birthplace if it's not too busy, but my preference would be to spend an hour looking around town, walking along the river, and perhaps stopping by at the Holy Trinity Church.

If the weather is poor, you could buy a multiple ticket and see whether you can fit in Hall's Croft as well.
