Event description

Description

On today’s walk, we will be venturing through the streets of Southwark to discover literary associations with some of the most famous writers of this country’s history

The area of Bankside was important for the growth of theatre in the Tudor and Jacobean period – so we look at the lives of writers such as William Shakespeare, Kit Marlow and Ben Johnson

We will visit the hospital where John Keats worked and also hear the story of Geoffrey Chaucer and his Canterbury Tales, as well as Samuel Johnson and his famous dictionary

Why Samuel Pepys write about his visits to Southwark during the period of the Great Fire of London. We will also visit an area which was once the home of Charles Dickens and hear about the prison which inspired one of his most famous books.

And not forgetting Bridget and her Diary as well as JK Rowling and her famous wizard!


IMPORTANT: Attendance on any walk can only be guaranteed through pre-booking. If you cannot pre-book here but wish to attend, you are welcome to do so, but you must please give me prior notice of your intention to attend.
