In 1196 40 Sheep Street, otherwise known as the Falstaff Experience, was part of the land owned by the Bishop on Worcester, who divided the area into 29 plots. It contained a private house at the front and a building at the back, which is now home to the museum. For 500 years it was known as the Shreive’s House because of its first recorded tenant, William Shrieve, who was an archer in Henry VIIIs army.
For such a small building it has witnessed a great deal of the country’s history and has been home to several of Stratford Mayors. Its walls have witnessed religious persecution, the plague, the English Civil War when troops were billeted there as well as it being used as a military hospital, and in 1595 much of the building was burnt down in a fire leaving only the front facade.
In the late 16th Century the building was known as the Three Tunns Tavern, owned by the uncle of William Walker, Shakespeare’s Godson. It is believed that William Shakespeare was a frequent visitor to the Three Tunns Tavern.
The Falstaff’s Experience started to run its own ghost tours because of the sheer amount of activity experienced by its staff and visitors. Some of its more active spirits are believed to be: a serial killer from the 18th Century, a young girl who was a pickpocket in the tavern and a Catholic gentleman who was a victim of the religious persecution. There are also reported sightings of parliamentary soldiers, children and animals.
Disembodied voices and whispers are heard along with heavy footsteps. Strange metallic and dragging sounds are heard, feelings of being watched and followed all around the building and feelings of being touched are all common occurrences.
