New Place (the site of the house Shakespeare bought when he became successful, and where he died)
Many of the rooms, as well as having numbers, have names, for various Shakespeare plays and characters.
We were a little worried when we saw our room...
I was relieved that pies weren't on the room service menu. and to be fair, our room was perfectly pleasant, and not, apparently, one of the haunted rooms which the hotel has (we did book on a cheapish deal. Perhaps they charge extra for the ghosts.)
In the morning we wandered around the town a little.

Later, on my way home, I went via Mary Arden's house (in fact at least 2 houses, with a working farm)
