Postcards of the Past

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire

Henley Street

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.
