Shakespeare's Birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon: 29 reviews and 75 photos
We spent about 20 minutes in the garden, it is not as large and splendid as the garden at Hall's Croft, but is full of charm and intrigue, with various areas within the garden.
There is a small lawn to the one side, a little herb garden that one walks past too, plus a paved area (for the interid tourists like us I imagine!). There is also a splendid tree.
In the photos you can see a Shakesperian herb garden, with some Golden Marjarom (Origanum aureum) and Chives (Allium Schoenoprasum). There were quite a few other types of herbs there too.
On the right handside of the garden is a bronze statue. This head is of Ralindranath Tagort (1861 to 1941). On the base it states he was a poet, painter, playwright, thinker, teacher, the voice of India. What an honour to have your head placed here!
It was presented by Dr L.M Singh, the Chief Minister of West Bengal to the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust on 4 July 1995.
One walks through the garden to get to Shakespeare's Birthplace from the Visitor Centre.
