The redevelopment of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre has been included in a list of the 20 best historical developments across England, it was revealed today.

“The theatre, located in Stratford-upon-Avon, has been designed using modern ideas without losing its original historic features,” said English Heritage.

Architects were also praised for creating new features such as a theatre tower with views over the town.

The Royal Shakespeare Company originally wanted to knock down the theatre and rebuild but the public objected so new plans were drawn up.

The grade II-listed theatre, designed by Elisabeth Scott, opened in 1932.
