    I loved my visit! I really enjoyed the tropical walkthrough and being able to see the butterflies flapping close around me. I also very much appreciated the Mayan statues decorating the area since I recently completed a course on Mayan and Aztec history. I thought they helped to give a lot of context to the setting. It was nice being able to walk the route multiple times too as I saw different things each time.

    Richard lll at the RSC
    My first visit post lockdown and shielding as I am classed as clinically vulnerable. This was a big step. I found the booking online and printing your own tickets really easy and safe. I ordered my brochure and collected it from masked staff, no bar staff wore masks and very few visitors either, so it is not a covid respectful place to be. Your very close when you go to your seats and literally as visitors pass you they are really face close. I was happy to have my mask on. The drinks arrangement was good though, the ceilings high. We were in stalls f4 and 5. The sound sometimes was very hard to hear, at times and there was an awful racket of electronic sounding chatter just by us. The two men a couple of seats away got really cross got up snd told whoever it was off saying it was not on. I feel that for £65.00 a seat on this corner of the the theatre if a plays sound is going to be a struggle either get it fixed or cut the price. It’s not good. It’s as of one was on volume fade especially when the backs are too us. The play is fabulous, a superb production
    the players really put you into the tragedy of the people who were lost to the bloody ambitions of Duke then King Richard.
    I especially loved the shadow and Margaret, my skin did prickle a couple of times!!
    We met in the foyer a lovely superfan from Ireland who has been to very many performances at the RSC. Which we thought was lovely.
    I think for me covid aware is about 2/10 could do more especially given the huge rise at the moment.
    Sound 6/10 for our seating area
    Noise interference terrible.
    Easy access etc did not use facilities.
    I love the theatre. I am unsure about returning for a while yet.

    Had a great time exploring this little museum. Interactive even for our 2 1/2 year old who enjoyed pressing the buttons. I can see how you would spend a few hours there. We were only there for 1hr 30mins; only because of my toddler.

    The only thing with this place that was a disappointment was that prams had to be left at the front door. We were lucky and my parents had already opted to walk round the shops more; so gave them our pram to look after. I was definitely NOT leaving it at ground level.

    Second visit to Stratford-on-Avon when we have included a visit to The Attic Theatre, both performances have exceeded our expectations. Fantastic shows with absolutely brilliant actors. We visit a lot of theatres, two nights before at Richard III RSC production wonderful but have to be truthful enjoyed The Attic equally. I would unreservedly recommend if you are able to treat yourself and enjoy one of the town's hidden gems, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    This a little further outside of town, but a lovely stroll along the river. It's situated in a peaceful area and is full of fascinating history; particularly the graves of some of the Shakespeare family, located at the High Altar. There are helpful QR codes to scan along the way, as guides to some of the artefacts and it's also a lovely area for refection. We can highly recommend a visit here.

    Excellent exhibition (#PAOTY); super friendly, helpful staff; lovely venue; great food and service.

    A very lovely, relaxed day, and warm, helpful service despite the cafe struggling with a wedding and a staff shortage. A nice range of good food from yea/coffee/cake right through to a full, classy lunch.

    Everything is well laid out, clean, clearly signposted.

    We will definitely be back. Thank you - especially to the lively lady in the cafe (who had lost her voice!)

    Informative about the olden days, cheap enough to walk around and visit various bits and bobs including a few movies you can watch.

    Was unable to visit the inside but the outside is a fine example of a period house, which originally belonged to John Hall, physician and son in law of William Shakespeare.

    A beautiful setting to sample your excellent coffee on the terrace! The whole shop is stunning & I would say unique in the area!

    Weve been to the main theatre before but not this one. Exactly the same layout as the other but felt more intimate. Play we saw was great but the whole evening was wonderful . Clean toilets, friendly staff at the bars and extremely helpful staff to answer our queries.
    As we came out we looked over at both the old and new theatres and felt so fortunate to live so close to these amazing buildings. If you've not been to either theatres, then put it on your 'to do' list

    Popped in whilst in Stratford and saw the signs for ‘who stole the tarts’. We decided to have a go and was informed there was no characters today but that didn’t detract from the fun we had solving puzzles and riddles. A real whodunnit which was well thought out. Once back in the shop we were made to feel welcome and I loved the showaddywaddy music playing in the background. Well worth a visit.

    Had breakfast at Bonds as we staying as we were camping just up the road. Food was delicious and service excellent. Had a wonder around the shop and was impressed with the layout and decor. Although slightly out of my price range. Very appealing on the eye, would definitely go again.

    Interesting place away from the hustle and bustle of main Street Stratford. Lovely very informative staff. Teens enjoyed seeing the history there.
