Shakespeare's Birthplace

Shakespeare's Birthplace is a half-timbered 16th century house in Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon. William Shakespeare was born there in 1564. His father John had lived there since at least 1552. Upon John's death William inherited it and he leased it out as he was already living in New Place, Stratford. Upon William's death it passed down through his descendents until it was sold in 1806 to Thomas Court.
The house was bought by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in 1846 and has since undergone significant restoration. It is currently a museum.
