  • See rare artifacts and family belongings, see live on-demand theater and his daughter's furnished home, Hall's Croft
  • Play with the animals at his mother's childhood home, Mary Arden’s Farm, and see Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, where Shakespeare romanced his wife-to-be
Description

Feel your high-school English Lit lessons coming to life as you stroll around Shakespeare’s Birthplace in Stratford-Upon-Avon, just a two-hour drive from London. Choose to see all 5 or just 3 homes to enter. You'll see live on-demand theater, rare artifacts from the Trust's collections, his mother's working Tudor farm, his daughter's home, and more!

Recently renovated, these properties are the ideal place to connect with the English language's greatest writer.

Shakespeare’s Birthplace

In the late 16th century the Bard was born and raised in this half-timbered house. It's now a museum outfitted with period domestic furnishings - including a recreation of John Shakespeare's glove-making workshop.

Shakespeare’s New Place

Shakespeare called this his family home from 1597 until his death in 1616. Though demolished in the 17th century, you can trace the building's original footprint, unearthed during excavations.

Hall's Croft

This furnished Jacobean home belonged to Shakespeare's daughter Susanna and her husband. Its highlight is the magnificent garden.

Mary Arden’s Farm

This was Shakespeare's mother's childhood home. It's a working Tudor farm with archery, falconry and the delightful-sounding daily goose parade.

Anne Hathaway’s Cottage

For the romantics, this is a key spot to visit; this is where young Will courted his bride-to-be (no doubt he called upon his powers of poetry to win her hand).

After your visit to this collection of properties you can say, as the character of Edmund did in King Lear "The wheel is come full circle: I am here."
