Full description
Open daily, Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall invites visitors to explore one of the rarely seen places of William Shakespeare’s childhood and youth, a place that helps to fill the missing chapter in the story of his time in his home town.  The newly-restored venue offers a glimpse into Shakespeare’s formative years and sheds light on his time as a schoolboy.  Step into the shoes of the young Shakespeare, sit in the very room that he sat in as a pupil and learn about what subjects the great man would have studied and the teaching methods of the day.  You will hear how he encountered the riches of classical literature and theater and saw some of the country’s finest actors perform in this building. Built in 1420, Stratford's Guildhall is one of only a few remaining medieval Guildhalls in the country. The authentic and immersive experience of a visit to this early fifteenth-century building will fully engage all visitors in its unique story.  Soak up the atmosphere of the Guildhall, including the late medieval priest’s chapel with its rare and recently conserved wall painting and learn about the building’s role as a medieval provincial Guildhall.  The visit promises to be full of fun, excitement and drama worthy of Shakespeare’s legacy for any group. Take a guided tour with knowledgeable guides, see a short film by historian and broadcaster, Michael Wood, on the history of the Guildhall. Take a lesson with a Tudor Schoolmaster, practice quill writing and dress up in a Tudor costume. Shakespeare's Schoolroom & Guildhall is perfect for all ages.
