Royal Shakespeare Theatre

It opened in 1932 as the Shakespeare Memorial Theatre and is now the headquarters of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Adjoining it is the Swan Theatre (1986), with a Jacobean apron-style stage and galleried seating, within the shell of an earlier theatre largely destroyed by fire in 1926. The Royal Shakespeare Company Collection includes paintings, sculpture and historic theatre material. Backstage tours can be arranged.
