Immerse yourself in the real-life world of the bard with a visit to Shakespeare's Family Homes in Stratford-upon-Avon. Exhibits offer insight into the life and times of William Shakespeare, and talented actors bring his stories to vivid life before your eyes.

Start your exploration at Shakespeare's Birthplace, where you can see rare artefacts and follow costumed guides through the house for insight into the family's history. See Will's father's glove-making workshop, and watch the resident actors bring Shakespearean characters to life.

At Shakespeare's New Place, you can see the site of the playwright's final home, checking out sculptures and works of art in the garden and studying the footprint of the home as uncovered by archaeological digs. Roam the Knot Garden and the Great Garden, pass beneath the mulberry trees, and check out the informative displays in the exhibition centre.

Make your way to the Jacobean home of Susanna and John Hall at Hall's Croft, where you can admire exquisite 17th-century furnishings, relax in the walled garden, and see the medicinal herbs as would have been used by Dr. Hall . At Anne Hathaway's Cottage, stand where Shakespeare courted his bride-to-be, stroll the woodland walk, listen to Shakespearean verse recited in the sonnet arbor, and take visitors of all ages for some hands-on fun at the family activity tent.

Finally, get a taste of daily life at Mary Arden's Tudor Farm, a 23-acre (9-ha) estate with a wildflower meadow and farmyard that's home to rare and heritage-breed animals. Watch impressive falconry and goose-herding displays, and learn all about the foods and rituals of a Tudor-style dinner.

Enthusiastic guides. Very easy to walk from one house to another but a much longer walk through a rather deserted series of alleyways to get to Anne Hathaway's cottage. Though interesting, not really worth the effort on a cold day.

We booked 2 tickets online with Expedia - really easy. The visit was really informative, the house and garden (even though it was not in bloom) was lovely and the staff who where positioned at various locations around the house and visitor center were really good at explaining about the history and interesting facts. There were also 2 actors in the visitor center who read out some Shakespeare extracts.... that was cool. I would recommend a visit and also buying the ticket that give you access to 5 different sites - as that's much better value.
