A brief history of life at Shakespeare's Birthplace

Did you know he was the third of eight children? When William was four his father became Mayor of Stratford which meant he was privileged enough to go to the local grammar school - thank you Mr Mayor!

In 1582, at the age of 18, William married Anne Hathaway. The young couple continued to live with his parents in the Birthplace. It's where their own children, Susanna, Judith and Hamnet were born.
