Shakespeare's Birthplace (Stratford-upon-Avon) Reviews
Description:Includes Shakespeare's Exhibition.
Newest Review: ... interesting bits here, but overall I found the idea of a video tour annoying. It is impersonal, as you have no real person to ask questions, you just have information presented to you on video. It is tightly timed as well, so you have to move around to the next bit when you're told to by the video, rather than linger at interesting bits and move past dull parts at a faster pace! Lights come ... more

My partner and I spent last week on holiday in Stratford-upon-Avon, as we fancied a break away and wanted somewhere which was pretty, relaxing but had plenty to do and see. On the Tuesday, we went into town and visited our first of the Shakespearean attractions - Shakespeare's Birthplace. INFORMATION Shakespeare's Birthplace is situated in Henley Street, which is in the centre of Stratford, CV37 6QW. It is open every day except Christmas Day. Under fives are free and there are currently extended summer opening hours (until 6pm), which is between June and August. On Fridays (until 26th August), there are twice daily Cradle to Grave guided walks ... Read the complete review

More than 3000 people visit my birthplace every day, and it's been open to visitors since 1836. Being far older and a bit more famous than I am (so far), Shakespeare's birthplace has been open for a good 250 years but still attracts fewer people on a daily basis. The fact that I was born in a busy general hospital whereas Shakespeare was born in his family home is really beside the point. The Shakespeare Birthplace is understandably one of the most visited attractions in Stratford, and often first on people's lists. I'd never been to the town before, so this was a must-do, and we wandered along soon after arriving. Located on Henley Street in the town centre, ... Read the complete review

During a visit to Stratford Upon Avon we sort of felt obliged to visit the birth place of William Shapespeare the famour playwright who made the town famous, in fact the whole town is geared up to make money fro the tourists who come to the town to get an insight into his life, the actual home where he was born is located in the centre of town a few doors down from an Argos however once you pass that modern home of consumerism the recent of the buildings are more in line with what you would expect, souvenire shops and tea houses along a pedestrianised street. The cost of entry was £8 however you can buy tickets which allow entry to all of the Shakespeare ... Read the complete review

I have wanted to visit Stratford-upon-Avon, in particular Shakespeare's Birthplace, for many years but I didn't get the chance until last weekend. We arrived at about 10am and spent the whole day looking around the Birthplace as well as the other Shakespeare houses. * * * *Location* * * * Shakespeare's Birthplace is located on Henley Street in Stratford-upon-Avon (Postcode: CV37 6QW) This is right in the centre of Stratford surrounded by cafes and shops. We found it quite easy to park. We paid £5 for a full days parking about 10 minutes walk from the centre. * * * *Tickets and Prices* * * * There are several different tickets ...

We felt that whilst having a holiday in the Bard's town we simply had to visit his Birthplace. It is a 16th century timber framed traditional style tudot property. It would have been quite a large property for the era. It houses Shakespeare's father's glove workshop. It is made from local oak from the forest of Arden. Looking into it before we arrived it worked out cheaper to buy the 5 house pass. you get a discount if you buy online. It was roughyl £15 which works out at £3 per propety. if buying individual tickets each house was more like £6-£7 to enter. Plus the 5 house pass lasts for 1 year so we can go back as many times in the next year as we want ... Read the complete review
