Virtual Shakespeare Tours

Ok, how did I not know about this?  Google Arts and Culture has virtual tours (or, rather, panoramic images) of a number of Shakespeare locations including his birthplace, the Globe, Juliet’s balcony, New Place, and others.


I’d literally never seen Shakespeare’s birthplace in context before. The ability to simply turn my head and see what’s across the street (in this case, it appears to be some sort of cafe?) makes the whole thing real to me.  Can’t wait to get there one day.

Which one is your favorite? How many have you been to in real life?
