If two months ago we had told you that you could virtually travel, visit the world’s most important museums (link Italy), tour the world’s most beautiful gardens, take in sonnets, concerts, operas, theatre, films (ddw film club, Alistair), ballets, all for free…and from the comfort of your home, you would have likely dismissed us as ingenuous. Well, if one thing is for certain we live in incredulous times. Thanks to these uncertain and difficult times the world has pooled together to open up paywalls and offer a plethora of amazing things to explore online.

DDW is here to help you navigate the vastness of the internet and distill the very best of what’s on offer:


The Louvre is amongst the amazing museums and galleries you can visit virtually


Beloved actor Sir Patrick Stewart is reciting one Shakespeare sonnet every day on his Instagram
