I have a guest blogger today. Lorenzo Goins, my husband will be speaking about our trip and the Globe Theater in Stratford on Avon, England. A note for clarification, his brother Steve went with us on the trip.
While the Brits have made many of their buildings and streets accessible to limited mobility people there is not much they can do about streets made hundreds of years ago with a variety of cobble stones. Most intersections have an area for wheelchair crossings but it is a pretty rough ride for the person in the wheelchair. Still, when the teeth stop chattering the views of the buildings and historical streets are really “Kodak” moments.
Not to be missed in the Shakespeare Theater is the second floor balcony overlooking the theater gift shop. From the gift shop you can look up and see mannequins in the theatrical dress for featured Shakespeare plays. While the material may be contemporary the design and presentation is worth the diversion up the stairs or by the lift.
