Description

Join this 2-hour walking tour through London, a city that was his home for the greatest part of his life. Even though London has changed a lot over 450 years, especially after the Great Fire and the Blitz, you will still be able to explore the history and the city life of the world's most famous playwright, who is considered the greatest English language author who ever lived. Starting off at Blackfriars Station, not far from the Blackfriars Theatre, the lost sister theatre to the Globe, you will learn more about the life of theater during the time of the author. Along the way, you will hear readings and learn about the 16th and 17th-century London that inspired Shakespeare and helped shape some of his well-known plays. Follow directly in the footsteps of William Shakespeare as you discover hidden or little-known memorials to him including statues, plaques, busts, and even a totem pole. In addition to all of this, the icing on the cake is that your guide, who is a former professional actor, will illuminate the tour with a few of Shakespeare’s sublime speeches.
