Shakespeare’s Birthplace

About this activity
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. Go back to the Bard's beginnings, and discover his early inspirations as you explore his charming hometown. 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!
In the late 16th century, the Bard was born and raised in this traditional half-timbered house. It's now a museum outfitted with period furnishings - including a recreation of John Shakespeare's glove-making workshop.
Looking for the full experience? Then follow in the Bard's footsteps to these historic properties with the 'Shakespeare’s Family Homes' ticket, which includes his birthplace.
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 foundations, unearthed during excavations.
This Jacobean home belonged to Shakespeare's daughter Susanna and her husband. Don't miss the authentic furnishings and magnificent garden.
This was Shakespeare's mother's childhood home. It's a working Tudor farm with archery, falconry and the delightful-sounding daily goose parade. Please note that the farm closes during the winter.
For the romantics, this is a key spot to visit; where young Will courted his bride-to-be (no doubt using his powers of poetry to win her hand).
After your visit to this collection of properties you can say, as Edmund did in King Lear "The wheel is come full circle: I am here."
