The house has a nice museum, with lovely authentic furnishings and interesting stories. The garden was very pretty and must look most impressive during the summer.

As Shakespeare's daughter's (Susanna) house, perhaps not the most well-known or most visited of the various houses. An interesting house and exhibits - some related to Susanna's husband profession as a physician being particularly of interest to small boys!. Lots of information on display boards but also informative staff on hand. Interesting and well- maintained gardens, a gift shop, and a cafe selling snacks and light meals.

We visited this because it was included on the ticket. The staff were helpful and friendly, there were a few interesting bits but it didn’t take long to look round.

The tearoom was closed for a private function which we were a bit disappointed about.

Enjoyed going around Hall's Croft. The gentleman at the reception was very informative and had a real enthusiasm for the history of the place.

I was impressed to learn it was the original building intact from the Tudor period. There was some really interesting items inside if your a history enthusiastic nut like me then you will enjoy looking around.

Inside, was lots of artefacts to see but not as immersive as Shakespeare's birthplace. The garden was very pretty and must look most impressive during the summer.

Lovely little cafe inside as well.

I toured round on Sunday morning and was able to feel the atmosphere as it must have been. Fascinating to imagine how they lived in Shakespeare’s time. I also visited the cafe in part of the house and celebrated with a glass of mulled wine and a home made mince pie with cream as Christmas is close.

If you have time I recommend getting the multi venue pass from the Shakespeare Centre and including this venue in your tour. It only takes an hour to have a good look through the house and garden, but it adds well to the overall experience and story of the family.

An amazing historical place well worth visiting. The medical exhibition, full of historical instruments and anecdotes, was wonderful.

We visited here on a cold day in November so did appreciate how warm it was in this building.

It really is a nice house and the garden is beautiful. We were greeted by Jeremy who was more than happy to tell us about the history of the place - I’m glad that he spoke to us as it was very interesting!

When we were leaving we also spoke to Angela who was very friendly and told us the way to Anne Hathaway’s cottage. She was very clear in her directions and the map she provided us with was very helpful.

My only minor criticism of the place would be that it would be nice if they had more personal belongings of the Hall’s on display. However, they may not have them as I know they had to bring in the furniture - hence why it’s still five stars.

Definitely visit as it was great!
