On a guided tour with Shakespeare Walks.

Groups can celebrate the work of William Shakespeare and his life in London on a guided tour in the capital with Shakespeare Walks.

The two hour long tour, which begins outside London Bridge train station, takes in locations including the grave of Shakespeare’s brother who was an actor in London; a 17th century tavern; and the sites of the original Globe, Rose and Blackfriars theatres.

Led by guide Robert Coleman who dresses in authentic 16th century Elizabethan costume for the tours, groups will discover more about Shakespeare, his family, friends and influences, as well as his impact on the English language.
