Shakespeare's Birthplace

Shakespeare's Birthplace is a carefully restored
16th century half-timbered house situated in
Henley Street, where it is believed that William
Shakespeare was born in 1564 and spent his
childhood years. It is now a small museum open to
the public and is a popular visitor attraction,
owned and managed by the Shakespeare Birthplace
Trust. It has been referred to as "a Mecca for
all lovers of literature."

Shakespeare's Birthplace has been welcoming
visitors for over 250 years. William
Shakespeare grew up here and he played here. He
ate meals in the hall and he slept and dreamed in
these rooms. Shakespeare also spent the first
five years of married life in this house with his
new wife, Anne Hathaway.
