To Be Or Not To Be, in Stratford Upon Avon

Tuesday August 19 2014

Today we went to Stratford upon Avon. First we visited Anne Hathaway’s cottage.  Anne Hathaway was William Shakespeare’s wife. They got married when Anne was 28 and William was 18. They had 3 children.

We also walked by William Shakespeare’s house where he was born. He was born in 1564 and he died in 1616.

We enjoyed tea and scones with clotted cream and jam…a favorite of the English.

Some people believe that William Shakespeare didn’t actually write his plays. They believe that a duke or noble wrote them because William could barley write his own name and he had no education. What do you believe?
