If you love Shakespeare these places should be on your bucket list

Now that Shakespeare's 449th birthday is approaching we decided to check for the most Shakespearian paces to visit. We attempted to automatically identify cities and towns for which the England's dramatist produced, directly or indirectly, a noticeable increase in attractiveness for tourists. We believe that visiting the places that are linked to a famous local is a great way to explore a town - so we may work in adding that option in your favorite travel app in the future.
But before we get there: here is the Shakespeare list:


London, UK, the long-time home of Shakespeare. The reconstructed Globe Theater, and the whole lot of other good theaters that are not at all ignoring Shakespeare's works today.

Stratford-upon-Avon




Stratford-upon-Avon, UK, the poet's birthplace, with the house where (it is believed) he lived as a child, and another house where his wife lived as a child. Inside Holy Trinity Church there's the Shakespeare's funerary monument. Royal Shakespeare Theatre is well worth attention too.

New York




New York, USA, with Shakespeare-in-the-Park performances and Shakespeare Garden (in the Brookyn Botanic Garden) makes it to the third place. As a little additional score booster there's the Puck Building, named after (and decorated with statues of) a character from A Midsummer's Night Dream.

Helsingør




Helsingør, Denmark. If we mention that the anglicized version of this name is Elsinore, no further explanations will be needed, right? And yes, there is a castle.

Verona




Verona, Italy. Similar story. The Basilica of San Zeno, the crypt of which is said to be the place of the marriage of Romeo and Juliet; Juliet's balcony; etc. A real fan would remember that there is also a Shakespeare comedy called The Two Gentlemen of Verona, about some guys who were, well, from Verona.

Oxford



Oxford, UK, where the buildings of some old places, notably Bear Lane and Golden Cross, are claimed to be personally acquainted with Shakespeare. On the veracity of these claims our algorithm has no opinion.

York





York, UK. Yes, the old York has made it to the list too, not only the New one. It is the ideal place to go for a couple in which one likes Shakespeare and another dislikes him. In Siward's Howe earl Siward, a character in Macbeth, is said to be buried. In one of the old city gates a small museum hides, dedicated to just how wrong Shakespeare was about Richard III.
