The house where the infamous English playwright grew up has been getting visitors for 250 years – including Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy. Exhibitions inside offer an insight into Shakespeare’s early life; there’s ‘Famous Beyond Words’ featuring an array of Shakespeare memorabilia, artwork and a copy of Shakespeare's First Folio and ‘Shakespeare’s Treasures Exhibitions’, which has a new selection of treasures from the collection on display every six months. You can also watch his plays being brought to life by ‘Shakespeare Aloud’, the house’s troupe of professional actors offers daily performances, where you can request an excerpt from any one of Shakespeare’s plays.
