    Royal Shakespeare Company Theater

    by saraheg77 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had the pleasure of seeing one of Shakespeare's plays in the theater in his hometown. Much Ado about Nothing was wonderful! If you get a chance, see a play here!

    This is the building where Shakespeare was born. The rooms are furnished in 16th Century style and the room where he was born is lit by a window inscribed with signatures of many famous writers.

    Anne Hathaway's cottage

    It was interesting, the visit to this cottage, less than 2 Km out of Stratford-upon-Avon. It's a nice rural area, but we had not enough time to appreciate it.

    The problems of packed trips...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Great Garden belongs to Nash's House but as it's open to the public you don't have to pay. It's a popular place for relaxing or lucnhing.

    Anne Hathaway's house. It is your classical thatched roof cottage. Much nicer than Shakespeare's house.

    The Bard's Birthplace

    by KittyLou Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Too crowded, too dark, and reaking of more restoration than authenticity, for me this was the quickest stop of the Shakespeare Houses.

    Visit Anne Hathaway's Cottage if you can. Anne was Shakespeare's wife. This house was part of her family for many years.
