A Virtual Tour Through The Whole Island Of Great Britain.  No.4 Stratford

A Virtual Walk Through Shakespeare’s birthplace, Stratford-on-Avon

Borrowing my title from Daniel Defoe’s early choreography, my first Circuit is from Chester to Edinburgh. Now on our fourth stop we are taking a virtual tour of the capital of  English Literature – Stratford-on-Avon.

We will be taking an in-depth walk around Shakespeare’s Birthday, visiting the sites in the market town associated with his history.  We will look for his neighbours, friends and acquaintances to get an insight into life in a Tudor Town and find out how a provincial boy became London’s greatest playwright revered around the world as one of the most significant writers.
Our walk will begin at the Birthplace, from here to the Market Cross and the shop ran by his daughter’s wayward husband.

We then walk past the house associated with John Harvard to the Guild Chapel where Shakespeare’s father had the Doomsday paintings whitewashed out.  Shakespeare would have attended here when at the local school next door.
Over the road is the site of the greatest house in Stratford, New Place, which Shakespeare purchased when at the height of his earnings as a playwright.

We continue to the house of his firstborn daughter and her husband, Doctor John Hall and examine his medical books. We finish across the road from his friend and moneylender, John Combe at the Church where Shakespeare was buried.
