Places to visit in Stratford-upon-Avon

  • Shakespeare’s Birthplace (closed for refurbishment, opens 5th February)

Visit the birthplace of Shakespeare to walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare and explore his childhood world. Hear tales of his family life and get up close to rare objects from the world class collections as you discover how the extraordinary William Shakespeare continues to shape our lives today.

  • Hall’s Croft (home to William’s daughter)

The house that we call Hall’s Croft was the home of William Shakespeare’s daughter, Susanna Hall, and her husband, physician John Hall, from 1613-1616. The building stands in Old Stratford-upon-Avon, positioned on the corner between Church Street and Old Town. The oldest part of the existing house was constructed in 1613, and therefore would have been newly built when the Hall’s took up residence.

  •  Shakespeare’s New Place (the last chapter in his life – opens 26th March)

Be inspired at the site that was William Shakespeare’s family home for 19 years. Uncover the fascinating story of the house that isn’t there and discover beautiful gardens and specially-commissioned artworks.

Shakespeare’s New Place was his family home from 1597 until he died in the house in 1616. The house was demolished in 1759, and a registered garden has been designed on the site where New Place once stood to commemorate the importance of the site and allow visitors to make their own personal connection with Shakespeare.

  • Anne Hathaway’s cottage (opens 26th March)

Visit Anne Hathaway Cottage, the beautiful 500 year old cottage where Shakespeare courted his bride to be. See original furniture including the Hathaway bed and uncover five centuries of stories in this picturesque cottage and 13 generations of the family who lived there.

  • Mary Arden’s Farm (the childhood home of Shakespeare’s mother)

Discover the childhood home of Shakespeare’s mother. Experience the sights, sounds and smells of a working Tudor farm on a fantastic family day out at Mary Arden’s Farm. Meet the Tudors who run the farm just as Shakespeare’s mother would have done, watch craft and falconry demonstrations and explore the farmyard, playground and historic buildings.

You can also see shows with The Royal Shakespeare Company

Originally titled The First Part of the Contention betwixt the two famous houses of York and Lancaster and labelled Henry VI: Part 2 when first published, our Henry VI: Rebellion asks if the people can ever really decide their own future.

With more battles than any other Shakespeare play, Wars of the Roses is a thrilling climax to Shakespeare’s three-part Henry VI saga of nationhood and power: who will emerge victorious?
