Description

 

Travel back to London in the 18th Century to discover how William Shakespeare changed from a fairly obscure playwright and poet to a near deity and became one of Britain’s foremost cultural icons.

 

The man responsible for the cult of Shakespeare was David Garrick the famed actor-managed who worked with a number of others including actors, poets and other cultural figures who took Shakespeare and fashioned him and his characters in their own image before claiming him for their own.

 


The walk will take approximately 1½ to 2 hours. For information on travel, please use Transport for London's Journey Planner
