  Jean in front of Shakespeare's Birthplace

While in Stratford-Upon-Avon visit Shakespeares Birthplace, Its the same house where he was born and lived as a young boy. Before going in the house you have to pass this Learning Center where you can read more about Shakespeares and his works (there was a school field trip when we were there). If you have the time go and learn more about him before you get in the house. The house is actually big for its time, its 2 stories and you'll see the room where Shakespeare was born, along with his fathers glovemaking room and the guide will tell you a lot of the history of the house. Ask him questions if you like... I did!
