There are many postcards of the Birthplace, probably one of the most photographed places in the country.  Early 20th Century postcard
artists liked to  enhance such views by adding people, animals and vehicles, a horse and cart appearing almost obligatory !

Henley Street in Stratford-upon-Avon is home to Shakespeare's Birthplace, a sixteenth century
half-timbered house which has been restored and opened to the public for many years. Most of
Henley Street has been closed to traffic because of the huge numbers of visitors. The
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust building now adjoins the Birthplace.
