  1. First Visit

    I have been to SOA hundreds of times (live in Birmingham only 20 miles away) and to my shame never visited until today. I took my 8 year old son and signed up for 5 house 12 month multiple visit ticket for 2 adults + 4children: £47 which is great value. T he experience was fantastic and my son was fascinated by the exhibition and the house. The tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Special mention for the on site actors (Neil) who will deliver a Shakespeare speech request by the visitors. Will be coming back for more!

  2. Fascinating visit ... after visit / & great value

    We love taking our visitors and family – especially grandchildren – to Mary Arden Farm (the best of the five for us) and other sites when we can. Shakespeare’s Birthplace is fascinating – and we love the impromptu actors who will perform excerpts from plays and sonnets on request. And Anne Hathaway’s Cottage is absolutely delightful.
    This is thoroughly worthwhile, excellent value, and provides hours & days of enjoyment for us and our family and visitors.
