Your group will love Shakespeare's Schoolroom & Guildhall, a fascinating experience for all ages.

Step into Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall and immediately find yourself in sixteenth century Stratford-upon-Avon. Sit in the very room where 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.  We offer your group a fun and engaging Tudor style school lesson with Shakespeare’s last schoolmaster and they may even leave having learnt a little Latin!

This interactive visitor experience will bring to life the many stories the magical Guildhall has to tell.

Admission voucher scheme and account facilities for coach and tour operators upon application.
