>Shakespeare tourists view wrong house -- for 200 years

My first reaction to this was bemusement. Why on earth *do* tourists
visit the house where Shakespeare's mother lived as a child? Would you
also make a pilgrimage to Einstein's mum's home, or Picasso's dad's
kindergarten?

There's a quasi-religious whiff about all this...
