Obviously the home of wealthy occupants of the Shakespearean period ,no artefacts were from the period. Quite pleasant visit to help recover from the shock of entrance fee at birthplace

We went to Halls Croft as it was part of our ticket at The Birthplace. It was not far away and quite near Holy Trinity Church. It was interesting because you could see where Dr Hall made up his medicines . There was a small tea room which was a nice suprise.

We were not intending to visit this house but decided to as it was included in the Town Pass. It's a small museum with a detailed information sheet to help you along the way which describes what the rooms were used for and how it has changed over the years. It's been preserved well and looks like it would look... More

This was included in the price of the Shakespeare's birthplace ticket. The ticket itself is vastly overpriced, in my opinion, however the visit to Hall's Croft tempered that rather. It's not terribly large, is a large empty old building effectively, with a few pieces added - HOWEVER the female tour guide that we happened upon in one of the rooms... More

Whilst in Stratford you have to visit Shakespeare's homes. We bought the three town house passes which includes the Shakespeare visitors center including Birthplace, New Place and Hall's Croft. We probably spent an hour at each place and throughly enjoyed ourselves. You are able to wander at your own leisure and the guides are also helpful.

The house was done up for Christmas which was lovely as it gave an oppotunity to see how things would have looked. Theres lots of information and things to see. Doesnt take londg to do either so can be tagged on to another activity.

A stunning building, one of a handful left that show what life was really like in Shakespeare times. Enjoy the shop and cafe as well as the beautiful gardens where herbs and other plants were grown by Shakespeare's daughters husband, who was a doctor. Close to the church its part of the town tour.

After the Birthplace, there are several other properties your ticket will get you into. They are all pleasant and interesting but in my opinion only Hall's Croft would be worth a separate admission fee. Amazingly, a private home until the 1940s, this house has more going for it than the WS connection. It is wonderfully well preserved and extensive. The... More
