Thatched roofs have a lot of character and look gorgeous. No wonder chocolate box photographers loved them. The pictures would always depict a scene of a tranquil country cottage with a thatched roof and roses around the door. Pure romance.
Most of the thatched roof houses situated in the UK are in the County of Devon in the West of England. And the only thatched roof you’ll see if you visit London is on the Globe Theatre on Bankside. Shakespeare’s theatre has a thatched roof made from Norfolk reed with hazel spars.
