A relatively recently developed addition to the repertoire of locations associated with Shakespeare. The guides are enthusiastic and well-informed.

What a fabulous tour! Great tour guide to accompany you, topped off by an actor who "takes you back to school" in an utterly engaging way. An absolute must - great for kids and great for adults! Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

If you fancy something other than the usual fodder of cottages and birthplaces this is a great option. You get to see how Shakespeare and his classmates studied in their day. Very informative and fun visit.

Another of those buildings you simply must see if you are visiting Shakespeare country. Another of those buildings that do credit to Stratford, a wonderful town.

If you have children please go and visit. You have the chance to be taught in a real classroom of the times. It was excellent. We were there for nearly 2 hours. Well worth the money. Very interesting but some of the information is repeated...More

We visited this place using a joint ticket (with Mad Museum) and really enjoyed it. The lady staff members were very knowledgeable and the introductory videos added to the history. However, the star of the show apart from the building and its significance was the...More
