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”.
