Hall's Croft, Stratford upon Avon
Hall's Croft
Located close to Holy Trinity church is Hall's Croft, a 16th century timber-framed house named after Dr John Hall, who married Shakespeare's daughter Susanna in 1607. Susanna and her husband moved from Hall's Croft to New Place after Shakespeare died, and today the house contains exhibits on medical practices during the Tudor period, and furnishings that would have been used during the Tudor and early Stuart period.
In 1607 Shakespeare's daughter Susanna married a prominent Stratfod physician named Dr John Hall. They lived here until 1616, when Shakespeare died, at which point the couple moved to New Place. The interior of Hall's Croft features a collection of period art and furniture, as well as exhibits on Dr Hall and Elizabethan medicine in general.
A small walled garden stands beside the house, in which you will find many plant varieties that were used in medical treatments in the late Elizabethan era.
