Visit Shakespeare's birthplace

Check out the old timber house on this small medieval market town where William Shakespeare was born and spent his early childhood.

The house still holds some of the original artifacts from perhaps the world's greatest poet and playwright.

Tip: Avoid the crowd and get in early.

It's a short-drive from London and is a popular tourist stop-over. It also makes a perfect educational trip if you fancy one.

Check the schedules when they conduct some of Shakespeare's play in the garden courtyard.

The place, being a market town, has some nice cafes nearby too.

Take a short stroll around the area to learn more of the town other than just being known as William Shakespeare's birthplace.


Drop by Anne Hathaway's Cottage

This thatched historical cottage is home to William Shakespeare's wife Ann Hathaway.

Tip: Package your tickets along with your visit to Shakespeare's birthplace.

This gives you some savings and ensures that you cover both places in one travel itinerary. It always pack up a crowd so get in there early.

There's also a bit to see outside the cottage which caters for a good walk.
