- The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is an independent charity that cares for Shakespeare's heritage. It owns five Shakespeare Houses in and around Stratford-upon-Avon, all directly linked to Shakespeare. The Trust also cares for Harvard House. The wider work of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust extends to managing one of the largest Shakespeare libraries in the world and a large archive of local history. It also runs a department devoted to education in Shakespeare and Shakespeare's Works, both for the public and educational institutions, and provides a programme of activities to inform and entertain throughout the year. Parts of the Designated Collections of national importance relating to Shakespeare’s life and times are at this venue.
