Shakespeare’s Birthplace is a restored 16th-century half-timbered house situated in Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, where it is believed that William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and spent his childhood years. It is now a small museum open to the public and a popular visitor attraction, owned and managed by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. It has been referred to as “a Mecca for all lovers of literature”.Shakespeare's Birthplace      
The house itself is relatively simple, but for the late 16th century it would have been considered quite a substantial dwelling.
