In The Footsteps Of Shakespeare & Hathaway

On our recent trip to Warwick, we visited the Lord Leycester Hospital. This Grade I listed building is one of the best preserved examples of medieval courtyard architecture in England and is a charity supporting ex-servicemen. It is located in Warwick, England, next to the West Gate, on High Street.

It is also the location where they film the outside shots of the offices of “Shakespeare & Hathaway: Private Investigators”.

Being big fans of the show, we recognised the courtyard and steps up to their offices. However, we were surprised to see how small the space is to park Luella’s mini.

We couldn’t resist having our own Shakespeare & Hathaway moment on the balcony.



Shakespeare & Hathaway – Private Investigators

This is a comedy-drama mystery television series set in Stratford-upon-Avon.

In the first series viewers were introduced to Ex-Detective Inspector Frank Hathaway, a debt-laden private investigator and his office assistant, Sebastian Brudenell, a RADA-trained struggling actor.

Luella Shakespeare initially hires Frank to investigate the fiancé……..only for her new husband to be killed at the reception leaving her the prime suspect! To clear her name, Luella starts working with Frank and Sebastian to crack the mystery of what really happened. Proved innocent, she uses her recovered savings to buy into Frank’s business. And so “Shakespeare & Hathaway – Private Investigators” is born.
