Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Indoor

Shakespeare's School & Guildhall will teach your children that they can grow up to do amazing things. William Shakespeare was an ordinary young boy when he first began his education here, but rose to become famous in his day and is now the most well-known playwright in the world.
You can see the schoolroom where Shakespeare studied from the ages of 7 to 14 and even take part in a Tudor lesson! Will you be able to handle it in a Tudor school? The homework is hard, the lessons are long, and the ‘master', or teacher, has a cane he uses on pupils if they've done something he doesn't like!
Shakespeare was only here for 7 years, but it's where he first saw plays. The Guildhall, open to the public today, was part of his school. Groups of travelling players, or touring actors, would perform around the country for ordinary people. Your child will be amazed to learn this is the closest to TV Tudor people could get!
There are plenty of stories to discover inside Shakespeare's School & Guildhall. It was built in 1420 so it's seen a lot of history happen! Featuring films, interactive displays, soundscapes, you can travel inside the Tudor world to discover Shakespeare for yourself.
