Create an itinerary including Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens
Set among extensive gardens, Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens is located only 1.6 km (1 mi) from Shakespeare's birthplace. The house was passed down through the Hathaway family until 1846, but the family still lived there as tenants in 1892 when the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust acquired the property. Inside you'll see spacious rooms that have been redecorated to resemble what they may have looked like during the life of Anne Hathaway, William Shakespeare's wife. In the gardens, you'll find modern sculptures depicting Anne and Shakespeare's sad story. Save money by buying your tickets in a package that includes entry to all the Shakespeare sites in the area. Wear good walking shoes and consider walking between each site to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Put Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Stratford-upon-Avon trip planner.

  • This is a special English place that is quite small, but very historic. If you like history, if you know about Shakespeare, you will love it. This photo is the orchard at the back of the house - lovely!
  • Really enjoyed my visit. The cottage was so interesting and the gardens were beautiful. Highly recommended if your a Shakespeare fan
