Hidden Shakespeare haunts in the capital

Help

William Shakespeare appears all over London in pub signs and street names. However much of his history in the capital is more hidden and now a new exhibition at the London Metropolitan Archives aims to change that.

The star attraction is a deed which shows the purchase of a house in Blackfriars and has one of six authenticated signatures of the Bard.

Wendy Hurrell has been to explore Shakespeare's London.
