Event description

Description

 

Act 2 in a series of linked walks covering the life of  Shakespeare in London covers The Bard at his peak in Elizabethan London's notorious red light district. See the Globe and Rose theatres with a full supporting cast of narrow cobbled streets, coaching inns, bear-bating pits, brothels and intense thespian rivalry.  Learn about the Bishop of Winchester's Geese, and Bear Baiting.  And visit Southwark Cathedral to hear about the memorials to Shakespeare and other playwrights.

There is a 20% donation to Southwark Cathedral for each Bankside walk. 

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 after at  Shakespeare's Globe
 

Meets in the Millenium Courtyard Southwark Cathedral, which lies between the Cathedral and the Thames, next door to the Mudlark Pub.  This is about five minutes walk from London Bridge station.   Please check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner
