    I had a lovely experience at Shakespeare's house. I was impressed by how old and still well maintained is the house. The garden is full of flowers and you can relax sitting on benches. Also, the staff is very friendly and professional and you can enjoy meals at nice restaurants with reasonable prices located on the same street. I truly recommend this place to be visited.

    Worth the train from London - lovely staff at Shakespeare’s birth place. Had photo opportunities for my daughter who studies English. She was impressed by the place. Went for a walk by the River Avon and had lunch in a vegan cafe. I thought the vibe was cool and quaint. Thank you we had a nice day.

    There are information areas which are accessed via QR readers. Unfortunately when there are others visiting and everone enters at different times it make them too hard to hear. No headphones are offered by staff. Would gave been good to know to bring our own. It would given a better informed experience. Also this event is still showing as part of English Heritage, well we found out when arrived that it is no longer so we had to pay entrance fee.
