Discover the secret garden of Anne Hathaway’s Cottage

Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire

Pay a visit to Anne Hathaway’s family home - the place William Shakespeare courted his future wife.

Enjoy the beautiful gardens as Shakespeare himself would have at Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Gardens, a thatched farmhouse with stunning grounds and gardens, which overflow with fragrant blooms and traditional shrubs.

There are plenty of hidden gems for you to discover as you stroll through the picturesque gardens. Uncover the new willow sculptures in the cottage gardens; in the spring, touch the Greenwood-Singing tree and be enchanted its words and melody.

Walk along the Music trail to unique compositions inspired by Shakespeare, and explore a specially created conservation border home to a variety of butterflies on the Butterfly trail.
