Shakespeare's Southwark - A Guided Walk

Shakespeare's Southwark - A Guided Walk

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

At the heart of William Shakespeare’s theatrical world was the building we now know as Southwark Cathedral. This was the scene of baptisms, burials and marriages for the actors and playwrights who graced the stage of Elizabethan theatre.
Our walk begins at Southwark Cathedral to view Shakespeare’s memorial and the ledger stone marking the burial in 1607 of William's actor brother Edmond. Discover the cathedral's strong links with the theatre and then explores Bankside, wandering the riverside streets trod by Shakespeare and locating the sites of the original Globe and Rose theatres.
Please meet by the Refectory in the Millennium Courtyard at Southwark Cathedral.
These tours usually run for an hour and a half. 
About our Guides
Our Cathedral guides undertake extensive training to learn 900 years of cathedral history and volunteer their time to deliver tour and walks for the cathedral. Many of them also work as City of London Guides and Greenwich Guides and are very knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects that they share with those who attend their tours.
Spaces are strictly limited so early booking is recommended.
