I brought my students for fourth time and as always liked it. Excellent place to start visiting Stratford and begin talking about Shakespeare. Then proceed to his birthplace and other sites.

The house was the family home of Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare. The well presented and preserved 15th C home and gardens are mostly self guided with some very helpful guides throughout to help you get the picture of the life and times....More

Enjoyed seeing how Tudor people lived and survived. Real life history lesson. Rooms are set up as they lived to sleep, cook, dine. Very good guide and well organised.

The garden with its view points, spring flowers, woodland walk and orchard was beautiful despite (or because of?) the heavy rain. The staff were very knowledgeable and open to questions. There are guided tours of the cottage (27 at a time) but we were allowed...More

Lovely picturesque thatched cottage - well informed guides give a flavour of life in the past - amazing to think parts are over 400 years old (original stone floor) and that William Shakespeare would have been there at sometime - lovely gardens and walks -...More

Expensive visit! Wife & I had a £1 reduction as both pensioners - normally I pay full price, my wife goes free as my wheelchair pusher! As it was, I couldn't have access to the cottage - surely disabled people existed 500 years ago! Not...More

Response from ShakespeareBT | Property representative |
Yes they are, on a lead - everywhere except inside the cottage itself unless they are an assistance dog
We are going to be staying in Stratford on a Saturday night in May. We have booked tickets to a play at the Shakespeare Theatre in the evening and would like to visit a few of the Shakespeare properties on the Saturday and Sunday. Does buying the house passes online save you any time during your visits? If you buy the house passes do you have to book entrance times and can you avoid any queues? Thank you.

The pass is great and well worth it. You don't need to pre book, you just walk in and they scan the ticket. Great value as you see all 4 properties
