A small little house who gives huge insight into how people lived during Tudor's time. If you can afford the tour guide, even better. The stories and the visual effects of the rooms ''hunted'' me after the visit. Great place to bring the kids too...they will appreciate their current life thereafter and will end up eating their veggies too. Lots of interesting facts on the walls.

A nice little museum, not enormous and the exhibits are perhaps dated, but this is a private museum not a mass funded "charity" one, and frankly the building itself and the enthusiasm of the tour guides is worth more than all that. A credit to the town, and a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see a taste of old Stratford.

I went with my 12 yr old son and we had lots of fun. He’s just starting to read Shakespeare in English lessons at school and has done the plague in history and about to do Tudors; so it was a perfect time. We really enjoyed the hands on approach with hats, Tudor bed and royal throne and the smells boxes! Fun for selfies. The more you personally get involved, the better the experience. It is a simple set up but that is part of its charm.

We visited on 3rd March in bitterly cold conditions and snow all around but we had a laugh and enjoyed the visit.

I would have to say that the place was not heated at all so it was cold and meant we wondered around in all our coats, scarfs and gloves but the weather outside made it worse not the attractions.

The great thing was that you were allowed to touch, to sit at the table, to lay on the bed etc, there was no stuffy hands off rules.

It was a tour through the Tudor times and some interesting facts were told.

A family of 6 adults from 42 to 70 all enjoyed the experience and at £6 an adult and £5 for seniors the price was reasonable.

3 attractions visited and lunch done we moved our family of 3 down Sheep street and into Tudor World.

Having visited Shakespeare's birthplace, Magic Alley and MAD museum in the morning we were already £70 spent in entrance fees (which would have been £100+ but for a Blue Peter badge and vouchers) so if you're on a budget there is the question of "is this a priority?".

The answer is no. Tudor World does little wrong but presents little excitement and uniqueness, I'm not convinced it was worth the entrance fee. The positives are a friendly face on the counter who did offer a family ticket discount (Always a frustration that the vast majority of places class a "family" as 2 adults and 2 children), the sarcasm poster providing a giggle on the way into the venue and information for us all to learn bits from on our visit. Downers were a broken interaction video section and a basic attempt to prove who is or isn't a witch - something that sounds fun but wasted with missed opportunity questions.

Similar to the Magic Alley reviewed in "part 2", the kids questionnaire extended our stay to around half an hour but without it you are talking a 15 minute walk through at best. Also a bit awkward when your kids are looking for answers and one of the first big posters is all about Tudor Sex. Not really necessary when I imagine your target audience are kids with clipboards.

Overall we had a great day of tourism in Stratford-Upon-Avon and if time and money is no object to you, then do pop into Tudor World. But if your in a rush or having to choose which venue gets your cash, I wouldn't prioritise.

Leaving Tudor World we took a walk over the river to our final destination, Butterfly Farm...
