Site security at all Shakespeare Birthplace Trust properties
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust conducts visitor and bag checks at its properties. We have also introduced a bag-size restriction.
To keep everyone safe and to protect our collections, we make it a condition of entry that you and your belongings may be searched.
Please do not bring luggage or large bags such as rucksacks to our properties. There are left luggage facilities in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon which are available Monday - Friday.
Sharp objects including small penknives are not allowed anywhere in our properties. If our staff find any objects they consider to be a risk to people or our historic buildings and collections they will remove it and return it to you when you leave. Any items they consider to be illegal will be confiscated and reported to the police.
These precautions are designed to safeguard everyone during their time with us. We really appreciate your co-operation.
