We attempted to automatically identify cities and towns for which the England's dramatist produced, directly or indirectly, a noticeable increase in attractiveness for tourists. We believe that visiting the places that are linked to a famous local is a great way to explore a town - so we may work in adding that option in your favorite travel app in the future. But before we get there: here is the Shakespeare list:
