Discover Shakespeare's London

I can help you discover Shakespeare's London at first hand, including hidden historical gems that you will not find in guide books. I have years of experience from researching the period and sharing the wonders of London's history with visitors and locals alike.


We will begin at Barbican station and walk towards Shakespeare's former lodgings on the northern fringes of the City. We will see some of the most important buildings and localities of the city that the playwright inhabited, including places where he lived and worked. Eventually we will make our way over the river Thames to Southwark, the site of the famous Globe theatre where Shakespeare's most famous plays were first performed.


As a literary scholar and historian, I can show you how the buildings, spaces and people of London found their way into Shakespeare's famous works and shaped his plays. This tour will give you a deeper understanding of Shakespeare, his works, and the world around him at the start of the seventeenth century.
