“Shakespeare Here There And Everywhere” explores the most famous works of The Bard – through historic maps and images.

The experience aims to show how authors, mapmakers and readers during Shakespeare’s time saw the world around them.

Highlights include – a 1629 map of the Danish castle that inspired Elsinore in Hamlet – an illustration of the Italian city of Verona from Romeo and Juliet – and a map of Fairyland from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The exhibition continues through February.
