Sat, October 15, 2016, 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM BST
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.
