Did this house inspire Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream?
It’s presumably named Shakespeare House for good reason?
Shakespeare House is a family home with a tale to tell. It could be hearsay, but word has it William Shakespeare stayed here on a number of occasions. It’s even rumored to have been his inspiration for A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The beautifully restored Grade II-listed house was formerly a 16th Century Inn named ‘The Ship’. According to tradition, the famous playwrite stayed at the inn, whilst travelling between Stratford-upon-Avon and London.
