Would Harry Beck Approve ?


Literary map geeks rejoice—TfL has released a Shakespeare-themed Underground map just in time to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the bard’s passing tomorrow. The Tube lines have been cleverly renamed for Shakespearean characters, locations, plays, and themes. The map will be available for sale as a poster or print from the London Transport Museum. While a large-scale map will be installed near the Globe Shakespeare theatre at Bankside Pier.
