son, Hamlet, and another girl, Judith. In 1587 Shakespeare went to work in London, leaving Anne and the children at home. Some years later Shakespeare began to write plays. The parents did not even guess that their son would be such an important figure in English poetry and drama and that his plays would still be acted four hundred years later in England and all over the world.

Stratford Upon Avon - Shakespeare's Birthplace

The main draw for visitors is to see the birthplace of William Shakespeare, perhaps the greatest poet and playwright of all time. The town sits along the River Avon and the setting is beautiful. I would say that 3 hours is plenty if you want to see most everything, although a few extra hours for eating and taking a stroll would be a good idea. Just up the road is Warwick Castle and we also suggest a quick tour of that if you have time. Try going on a weekday to get away from the weekend crowds, but otherwise enjoy the history of Stratford and do the walking tour we have mapped out below.

In 1613 he finally stopped writing and went to live in Stratford where he died in 1616. He is buried in Stratford-on-Avon.
