Shakespeare Anniversary Walk

London Bridge tube station, London

Guided by Lance

O for a muse of fire… (Henry V)

Aces high. Four of ’em: Perfect guide. Perfect subject. Perfect time. Perfect place.

Lance – the Voice – guiding his Shakespeare Anniversary Walk on Shakespeare’s birthday on the Bankside (where the Globe Theatre was and is).

Now sits expectation in the air (Henry V). Because we’re venturing into the centre of the literary universe. Where English poetry began. And where, 200 yards upstream and 200 years later, the modern English drama was born. And that’s just by way of setting the scene for William Shakespeare. The main act is finding the bits and pieces where some kind of reality can be touched across all those years. Places and artefacts where we can make contact with someone who disappeared 400 years ago. In short, you want Shakespeare in his habitat – you want his London, his cultural and physical landscape – this is where you come. And whom you come with. Guided by “the Voice”, LanceSo come gallants, lads, ladies, hearts of gold! What, shall we be merry? (I Henry IV)

Lance. Shakespeare’s anniversary (both of ’em: yes, he was born on April 23rd and died, 52 years later, on April 23rd). A walking tour celebrating his life and work. A walking tour in the perfect “where” – The Bankside, the epicentre of his literary and theatrical life.

For good measure, it’s St. George’s Day!

The planets. All of them. Aligned. Perfectly.

SHAKESPEARE ANNIVERSARY WALK – THE PRACTICALS

The Shakespeare Anniversary Walk takes place at 2 pm on Txxxxxx.  Meeting point is outside the Duke Street Hill exit* of London BridgeTube. *Can be a bit confusing, this exit. It’s also known as the Tooley Street exit. Out of the exit it’s Tooley Street down to your right. Turn left though and walk up toward Borough High Street and London Bridge the name changes and the same street becomes Duke Street Hill. 

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Shakespeare Anniversary Walk 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.
