Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall – Museum Trips for Schools

A visit to Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall offers a fun, informal and authentic learning experience for any school group, bringing history to life for your students.

We offer a unique experience that cannot be recreated in the classroom. All visits are designed to make the best use of your time and provide an authentic and unforgettable learning experience.

The Experience

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 young Shakespeare 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 Stratford – his education and the inspiration that led him to become the world’s greatest playwright. Meticulous conservation work at 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.

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