It is now 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare. He is widely considered as the greatest English language author who ever lived and now you can take a Shakespeare London walking tour into the history and London life of the world’s most famous playwright.
The walking tour will start from The Old Vic, one of the theatres most associated with the world’s most famous Shakespearean productions.
You will be guided through areas frequented by the Bard of Avon, experiencing readings along the way and learning about the 16th and 17th century London that helped shape some of his most well-known plays.
Although much of Shakespearean London has been swept away during the Great Fire of London and The Blitz, your expert guide and actor will guide you alongside the great artery of Elizabethan London – the River Thames, leading you past theatres and other historic sites Shakespeare would have been familiar with in his literature.
The route of the tour will focus on the South Bank area of London that was the hub of theatrical life in the capital during the life of Shakespeare.
Your guide will also illuminate the tour with suitable speeches to quote from Hamlet, Henry V, As You Like It, Antony and Cleopatra, Richard II and Richard III as well as visiting film locations from the Ian McKellen 1996 film of Richard III.
