Lovely almshouses and great living history, as these houses are still occupied don't expect to walk around inside them. Are adjacent to the school. Lovely period property that is kept in a good state.

The original Almshouses were built in the 15th century and, thankfully, have been restored and maintained ever since, and are still used for the purpose for which they were designed. Appreciate then as you walk from the Grammar School to Hall's Croft.

Pretty little houses and very old, just one of those nice historic things to look at and appreciate in passing.

These houses were fascinating as they are still used in same way as first intended with occupants being chosen because of need not how much they have and can buy an old house. They are so pretty and original.

The Almshouses are just another opportunity to pretend to are in a different time. Great for pictures and imagination. I enjoyed.

As first time visitors here, not just the Almshouses, but all the "Olde Worlde" buildings in Stratford-Upon-Avon are exactly like we imagined they would be. If these are the original buildings then they have done remarkably well to look so good after all these years....More

A lovely row of buildings just behind the guild chapel. The almshouses are also attached to the school and guildhall and just after the guild chapel is Shakespeare's New place attraction
