Shakespeare had three children: Susannah, the eldest, then twins — a son, Hamlet, and another girl, Judith. In 1587 Shakespeare went to work in London, leaving Anne and the children at home.

Stratford Upon Avon - Shakespeare's Birthplace. The main draw for visitors is to see the birthplace of William Shakespeare, perhaps the greatest poet and playwright of all time. The town sits along the River Avon and the setting is beautiful.
