It's a ticket kiosk on steroids. It is your preface to Shakespeare. Make sure you get the combo ticket if you will be there long enough to see it all.

For those who are interested in Shakespeare's life, a visit to this centre is a must. The display of his life and times are nice, although there is hardly any mention of his contemporaries like Chistopher Marlow. A few original items are also on display.

As a bookworm and literary lover the Shakespeare Centre was a must see place for me and I was not dissapointed. Highly educational with magnificent exhibits and artefacts. I would recommend purchases a combo ticket online.

We visited on a Pass for the three townhouses. Though the pass was quite expensive the centre did provide lots of interest. It was packed with foreign tourists though and so overly busy.

Fantastic to see the history being kept. Great buildings to look at and statues. Interesting museum on Henley Street but closed too early. Good selection of shops on the street too. A must to visit.
