What makes this visitor attraction is the quality of the "players" who are full of stories and historical anecdotes and really bring Shakespeare's world to life for all ages of visitor.

This property is the birthplace of Shakespeare and due to that is a tourist magnet. I found it too commercial for my liking. We visited in October and found it reasonably quiet. I can imagine in peak tourist season it would be very cramped. The rooms in the house are small and coaches full of tourists would see this place over run. The museum at the beginning gives a good history of the place and Shakespeare. For me the best part was the wall which showed Shakespeare's influence on the English language. The gardens are small and well laid out. There are actors who will act out Shakespearean scenes and the guides are only too happy to answer any questions.

Interesting display and video 15 minutes showing various old and new performances along with lots of info re his works and life. Lovely peaceful and tranquil garden and interesting old house with some people inside who knew their info. Disappointed with the courtyard actors who seemed to be happy to sit around and chat for over 39 minutes without performing. Eventually gave up and went out through the shop. Good value ticket for 4 Shakespeare sites available.

Fascinating visit. We picked the yearly ticket even though we only wanted to go once - it's cheaper to do if you want to visit 2 or more of the houses. Great interactivity in the rooms with the hosts and will easily gauge whether or not you want to talk - appreciated that!
