Shakespeare’s Walking Tour

SELECT DATE

Our Shakespeare’s Walking Tour delves into the history of Bankside as a theatre district.

Your tour guide will transport you back to Elizabethan London highlighting interesting historical landmarks of the area. This includes The Rose Playhouse which was built in 1587, 12 years before Shakespeare’s original Globe. It is believed that some of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, including Titus Andronicus, were first performed here, and the site still inspires writers and actors today!

Thameside ferrymen and the blood-thirsty sports of bear- and bull-baiting also feature in this tour, making it the perfect way to immerse guests in the Bankside that Shakespeare would have known!

Since this tour takes place entirely outside of Shakespeare’s Globe, instead taking to the streets of London, please bring appropriate clothing for the weather.
