Event description

Description



Act 1, our first walk of our series of linked walks on Shakespeare in London is the ruff guide to Shakespeare's early life in edgy Elizabethan Shoreditch. Discover the sites of London's earliest purpose-built theatres where Will and friends earned their writing and acting spurs.  Shakespeare's early career  started in Shoreditch - a village, then outside the City walls, and a notorious entertainment district.  The walk also visits the places that Shakespeare is said to have lived, and other locations   associated with Shakespeare Contemporaries and Elizabethian Theatre, before ending at London Bridge - in sight of Southwark Cathedral and Bankside.  This walk takes between an hour and a half and two hours to complete.
  

Meets at Shoreditch High Street (on the Overground).  The Overground can occasionally be closed at weekends, so please check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner
