To celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, take a two-hour walk through Shakespeare’s London, brought alive by 22 actors. There is a choice of two walks: starting from Westminster Abbey or from the parish of Shoreditch where the original Theatre was built in 1576. Both walks finish at Shakespeare’s Globe.

Along the way you will visit places in London that Shakespeare knew, and encounter scenes, speeches and sonnets enacted in the streets, parks and squares of modern London.

Conceived by Mark Rylance, who will be a part of the company, Sweet Love Remember’d has taken place annually in April for over 25 years.


There will be two starting points for The Shakespeare Walks, all walks will finish at Shakespeare’s Globe.

West Walk – Departure from Westminster

You will be provided with the route and map at the starting point on the date and time of your walk. Please bear in mind that it’s quite a long walk so we recommend footwear for a long walk and, depending on the weather, gloves, coats, and raingear. If you have any access requirements, please inform the Box Office at time of booking.
