Walk Times

Day Walk Type Start Time End Time
23 April 2022 Special 10.30 am 12.30 pm Winter
Follow the lutenist from Moorgate tube to Southwark Cathedral stopping at the Shakespeare Garden in Love Lane, The Bard’s former digs, his friend John Donne’s place of work, his replica place of work, the site of his real place of work, the bear pit (the grizzly Harry Hunks’ place of work) and Southwark Cathedral where he buried his brother Ned Shakespeare.
Rick will be standing outside Moorgate tube busking with lute from 1.30 pm on Friday 23 April. Translation: you can’t miss him. With that lute and that costume you’ll certainly see him. And, yes, you’ll hear him. He gives, shall we say, to airy nothing a local habitation and a name.
O mistress mine
Where the bee sucks
Full fathom five
…any requests?

  1. Freda Roberts

    My daughter and I really enjoyed this walking tour. Rick is very knowledgeable and appears eager to share his knowledge. Lots of interesting facts, book yourself on this tour you won’t be disappointed!

  2. Melanie

    Another wonderful walk with Rick (also highly recommend his city churches walk) full of information and with the added bonus of his lute playing, singing and recitations of words by Shakespeare along with some of his contemporaries. I was fortunate to go on this walk on Shakespeare’s birthday so we finished with a concert celebrating the Bard in Southwark Cathedral.

  3. Suraya

    Rick evokes a real Tudor atmosphere with his excellent lute playing and his extensive knowledge of Shakespeare helps to bring all of the locations visited to life. Many hidden gems to discover – don’t hesitate to go on this super tour.
