Shaw's Corner was the beloved home of George Bernard Shaw for 44 years. He left it to the Trust on his death, and we've taken care of it ever since. Shaw was a towering figure of the 20th century, renowned for his wit and imagination and the enduring characters of his plays. The house is much as Shaw left it, with a fascinating collection of personal effects. You can also visit his famous writing hut, which is tucked away at the bottom of the garden.
