Anne Hathaway's Cottage
The beautiful 500-year-old cottage where Shakespeare courted his bride-to-be, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage is a sight to behold. See original furniture including the finely carved oak Hathaway bed and uncover five centuries of stories in this picturesque cottage.
Enjoy a scrumptious English afternoon tea in the surroundings of 13 generations of the Hathaway family.
One of the last Hathaways to occupy the famous cottage was Mary Baker. When the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust purchased the cottage in 1892 from the then landlord, Mary and her family were subsequently paid a wage of £75 per year to share family stories and to care for the cottage, These very same stories are still told at the cottage today and take visitors on a journey back in time to the rituals and beliefs of Hathaway, Shakespeare and their ancestors.
