“Best place to visit in Stratford-upon-Avon!”

Immerse yourself in sixteenth century Stratford-upon-Avon, explore the very room where William Shakespeare sat as a pupil in the 1570s and the space where he first saw plays performed by the country’s greatest actors of the day.
• Join in a Tudor School lesson with Master Thomas Jenkins
• Dress up Tudor-style “selfie”
• Play Tudor games and get messy with quill and ink
• Marvel at our medieval wall paintings
• Brush up your Latin!

Whether a lifelong Shakespeare enthusiast or new to his enduring legacy, this authentic experience illuminates and brings to life a chapter in his history that has so far remained untold. Fun for all the family.
