Shaw's Corner, Hertfordshire
Off A1(M) exit 6 - approximately 5 miles/15 minutes
If you'd been walking up the drive at Shaw’s Corner 70 years ago, you would have been coming to visit one of the most famous, most photographed and most quoted men in the world. Playwright, politician, philosopher and wit George Bernard Shaw lived in this Edwardian villa for over 40 years, and today his home remains much as he left it. Wander from room to room enjoying the beautiful Arts and Crafts interiors, or head for the gardens and find a quiet corner where you can relax and reflect. Maybe you’ll find the inspiration to write a masterpiece of your own?
