|Anne Hathaway's Cottage, is probably one of the most famous houses in the world.
Located just a short distance from the centre of Statford-upon-Avon, this 15th century thatched cottage with its picturesque garden was home to Ann Hathaway whom William Shakespeare married when he was just 18.
His twin daughters, Hamnet and Judith, were born just six months later and continued to live here with their mother even though William lived and worked for most of his time in London, paying frequent visits his family in Stratford. Two years before he died, William and his family moved to another house in Stratford, New Place, which was later demolished.
