British Museum Celebrates Shakespeare; Hotel Offers Deal

Culture fans in London should make sure to visit the British Museum, which has a cool exhibit—"Shakespeare: Staging the World"—running through the end of November.

The exhibit, which is part of the World Shakespeare Festival (which itself is part of London 2012 Festival), provides a unique insight into the emerging role of London as a world city interpreted through the innovative perspective of Shakespeare’s plays, and will be brought to life through objects, digital media and performance. It includes diverse works of art, from great paintings to jewels and rare manuscripts, as well as (of course) the plays and characters that have had a richer cultural legacy than any other in the Western World.

And around the corner from the Museum, The Montague on the Gardens is offering a special package—Celebrating William Shakespeare—that includes:

Two nights’ accommodations
Full English breakfast each morning
Two tickets to the exhibition of ‘Shakespeare: Staging the World’ at the British Museum
Shakespeare Cookbook
