Shakespeare is the most widely celebrated writer in the world - yet in London, where he spent his working life, he is curiously neglected apart from the reconstructed Globe theatre.

Shakespeare's London uses satellite positioning on your mobile phone to pinpoint buried memories, from the 3,000 seat Swan theatre on Blackfriars Bridge Road to the only house he is known to have lived in (now lost under a car park).

Whether you are in London, New York or Melbourne you can walk in the master's footsteps: you are told how many yards or metres you are from the site of a local pub mentioned in Twelfth Night, the two theatres in Shoreditch where he cut his teeth, the tavern where Falstaff caroused, the street where a brothel owner lived (with whom he wrote a play) plus dozens of other locations.

Whether you a Shakespeare lover or a curious visitor - let Shakespeare's London be your guide to some of the buried secrets of literary London.

A Great App for when you


I know people whinge at paying for Apps - but I think one should differentiate between the big Corporate Apps charging to add to their over inflated balance sheets and Apps like this one - put together by a couple of people with a passion for the subject and gumption to get out there and doing it - simple proposition, clean interface design and meticulously researched content.
I've been using it loads and love discovering London's hidden history. Give it a go

Very poor app :O(

App crashes on the intro every time so no idea what rest of app is like! Very disappointed :O(

It's a map


There is no pins as shown in the store. The intro is the only place you'll find anything about ol' Will. Even the map refuses to load until you hit the You Are Here button. I zoomed in on the Globe Theatre, no pins, no info, no pictures, nothing, not a jot.
Seriously. I want a refund, or an app that works.
