Discover where William Shakespeare was educated and inspired to become the world's greatest playwright.

Immerse yourself in sixteenth century Stratford-upon-Avon. This engaging experience provides a crucial chapter of the story of Shakespeare's life in his home town.   Explore the building in which young William was educated in the 1570s.  Learn about what subjects he would have studied and experience for yourself the teaching methods of the day.  Brush up your Latin with a Tudor lesson with Master Thomas Jenkins!

Films provide background information about Shakespeare's school days and the historic significance of Stratford’s Guildhall.  Built in 1420, this building is one of only a few remaining medieval Guildhalls in the country.  Knowledgeable and passionate Guides bring to life the many stories about the building and the Shakespeare family.
