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

Step into Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall and immerse yourself in sixteenth century Stratford.  Sit in the very room that William Shakespeare sat as a pupil in the 1570s, visit the Council Chamber where his father served as Bailiff (Mayor) and experience the space where he first witnessed performances by the country’s greatest actors of the day. Participate in a Tudor Schoolroom lesson and brush up on your Latin!

Stratford's newest heritage site and visitor attraction provides the missing chapter of the story of Shakespeare's life in his home town - his education and the inspiration that led him to become the world’s greatest playwright.  Major restoration and meticulous conservation work of the Guildhall, home to a series of rare medieval wall paintings, provides an extraordinary history of the building and of over 400 years of civic history of Stratford.
