Make a Donation

Please support our work by making a donation today.

The Shakespeare Houses and Gardens
We care for all five of the surviving houses associated with Shakespeare and his family: his Birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Nash’s House, Hall’s Croft and Mary Arden’s Farm as well as the site and gardens of New Place, Shakespeare’s final home. When you make a donation you will be helping us keep these houses open and in good condition so that we can continue to welcome visitors for hundreds of years to come.

Unrivalled collections, unparalleled education
We have accumulated the world’s 2nd largest collection of Shakespeare-related materials – including the only surviving letter written to Shakespeare, three First Folios and many other treasures, including the archive of the Royal Shakespeare Company. 

20,000 students of all ages and nationalities attend our courses, lectures and seminars each year. They tell us that nothing can compare to studying in the heart of the town where he was born. Thousands of people also use our reading room which is one of the few specialist Shakespeare libraries that is open for everyone to use.
