Beautiful photos of Shakespeare’s England

We take a photographic tour of Shakespeare’s England with VisitBritain.

Shakespeare’s England boasts an impressive collection of historical treasures relating to the Bard. A large concentration of these are in his birthplace, Stratford-Upon-Avon, and the surrounding county of Warwickshire, but there are also gems all over the country, including the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe theatre on London’s Southbank.

From the cottage of Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare’s wife, in Stratford, and the Bard’s mother’s farm, to his birthplace, grave, and the many idyllic gardens of Shakespeare’s England, there is a vast array to things to see. And thatÆs before you start on the theatres, exhibitions (such as The Royal Shakespeare Company’s costumes displays) and beautiful historic buildings that are also on offer.

Here we put together an image gallery of the best:
