This is where you purchase your tickets and there is a choice depending on how long you have and exactly which places you wish to visit. The display after the ticket desk is really interesting and there are guides scattered about to answer any questions...More

Didn't actually get in to visit the centre as some parts of the centre were closed due to the snowy weather, however, they still wanted to charge the full price of £22 each. Very poor and ensured we won't go back when the weather's better.

The introduction to Shakespeare here is excellent. Visiting the houses is rather disappointing as there is so little known about Shakespeare's life.

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.
