Event description

Description

Act 3 one of  series of linked walks covering the life of  Shakespeare in London tracks Shakespeare and his King's Men acting company as they transfer across the river to the West End (of the City of London). Find the old Blackfriars theatre site and the priory gatehouse bought by the now rich playwright. Visit pubs and other buildings known by the Bard and stand near the site of his Silver Street lodgings.  

This walk  takes between an hour and a half and two hours to complete.    Food and drink are available before the walk at the Southwark Cathedral Reflectory or   Shakespeare's Globe. This walk ends at the Museum of London which is free to visit and provides additional background information on Elizabethan and Jacobean London as well as places to eat and drink
 
This walk starts outside the nearest door to the Millenium Bridge of the Tate Modern on Bankside (close to Shakespeare's Globe).  The Tate Modern is about fifteen minutes walk from London Bridge, Southwark or Waterloo stations - please check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner
