I think I enjoyed this the most of the Bard's sights. The staff was spot on and who doesn't want to be a kid again.

Only recently opened, a wonderful addition to Stratford's Shakespeare sites. Treading the boards where Shakespeare studied is a unique and evocative experence beautifully presented and a great turn by Sam as the schoolmaster.

Visited today - we found this an excellently presented and researched site. Learned a lot that was new - the films were informative and moving - and Master Webster (Sam) was a treat. Great interaction and so special to sit in Shakespeare's schoolroom and visit...More
