What You'll Get
This tour is for lovers of Shakespeare including those who might have seen the film 'Shakespeare in Love' starring Gwenyth Paltrow. Your very own tour guide will walk you through the lanes of South Bank, which was in the time of Shakespeare a little bit like England's very own Las Vegas. It was the entertainment district with many pubs, brothels, theatres and churches standing next to each other!
You will get to see the actual site of the original Globe Theatre that opened in 1599 and in which Shakespeare himself had a share.
You will see where the Rose Theatre once stood, the Globe's competitor whose director was Ben Jonson - friend and colleague of Shakespeare's.
Venues on the tour include the ruins of Winchester Palace, the Anchor Pub as well as the magnificent Southwark Cathedral were the Bard worshiped and where his younger brother Edmond is buried. The Shakespeare stained glass window is beautiful. There is much to see on this guided walking tour that relate directly or indirectly to Shakespeare such as the Ferryman's Seat and an exact model of the Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drake's little ship that circumnavigated the globe. The official in-house Globe Theatre tour is included in the tour and gives you an up-close and personal look at how Shakespeare's Globe must have been like. This was the dream fulfilled of American actor/producer Sam Wanamaker.
