Short read: Treachery and spectacle!

Long read: A description that could be applied to Shakespeare's plays or the life of his patron – Queen Elizabeth I. Our knowledge of day to day existence in Elizabethan England is sporadic but it is rich in detail in two areas – theatre and royalty. On this tour we learn all about the upstart playwright's time in Clerkenwell, now a chic London neighbourhood but then 'a haunt of thieves and whores'. Included is a stop at the site of a theatre where his plays were performed and a pub he would have frequented. We also find out how dangerous life was for Good Queen Bess and inspect three outstanding historical buildings that she visited. Join us to discover the parishes, plays and murderous plots of Elizabethan Clerkenwell.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Elizabethan Clerkenwell walk do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Elizabethan Clerkenwell Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at privatewalks@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a very special, thoughtful, unusual present. Be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood or graduation or Christmas gift or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
