Shakespearean Times

Macbeth: First Folio

From his birthplace to his grave, Stratford-upon-Avon is the place to find all the history and places associated with Shakespeare and members of his family. There’s always something new – the recently restored Knot Garden at New Place as well as timeless cottage garden loveliness at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage. Also seasonal highlights, must-sees, artworks.

Anne Hathaway's Cottage garden

For more, the Library of Birmingham houses one of the largest Shakespearean library collections in the world! Everything to Everybody is a new project there, designed to bring the collection to life and one aspect is World’s Stage, a series of seven short films with a cast of 140 multilingual people from Birmingham performing in most of the 93 languages to be found in the collection.
