April 23rd is an important day in England. It’s the Feast Day of Saint George, The Patron Saint of England, but it’s also a very special day for William Shakespeare. April 23, 2015 marks the 399th anniversary of his death as well as being 451 years since his birth in Stratford-Upon-Avon. What could be more appropriate than to have England’s favorite son tied to the Feast of Saint George?
In honor of his birthday, here is a montage of pictures from The Bard’s hometown stomping grounds.
