Stratford-upon-Avon Shakespeare's city, has many historic theatres and all his tourism besides being a beautiful place is due in part to know the birthplace of the famous writer.
The house itself is relatively simple, but by the late of 16th century, a house would have been considered very important. John Shakespeare, father of William, was a glove maker and wool merchant, and the house was divided into two parts to allow him to carry his business and residence there.
The building is not architecture but this exceptionally well preserved in almost original 90% of the time.
