About The Tour

Shakespeare coined the phrase ‘A brave new world’, a time of new hopefulness, so fitting at this time to join your British Tours guide on a fascinating walk following in the footsteps of the Bard.

Shakespeare spent many years in London and on this exploratory tour, we will take you to some of the locations that would have been very familiar to him.

From the dining hall where Twelfth Night was first performed, the sites of several London theatres including the original Globe, his parish church, the location of his London dwelling, the memorial dedicated to his two fellow actors Hemming and Condell for whom we have to thank for the First Folio.

Our walk takes you over London’s most famous bridge, with stunning views of London’s most beautiful bridge, a walk that Shakespeare would have certainly taken many times to Southwark Cathedral where his brother is laid to rest. Also see London’s oldest and most wonderful market and of course the New Globe Theatre.

The foregone conclusion of this tour is a libation in an authentic 17th Century Coaching Inn, after all, “good company, good wine, good welcome can make good people’.

Visit the Globe theatre in an extra hour.
