This was an absolute dream, to walk through the place where Shakespeare grew up. As a fan of his work, I was in absolute awe as soon as I saw the fool statue in Stratford, let alone the actual house itself! I went on a Saturday, so I was ready to brave the crowds and my elbows were reporting for duty. However surprisingly, it was not as busy as I anticipated! I was able to move effortlessly through the rooms of the house, and lingered to read important documents and other provided information without having to fart (so that people would stop pushing into me). Just to be in the same rooms as Shakespeare walked was amazing. It is so well preserved, and there was a lovely lassie in there telling us stories of Shakespeare's life, such as his father's work and shop, and Shakespeare's birth. The town itself is charming, so clean and welcoming... it was everything I hoped for and more.
