The Globe Theatre is #10 in our London Bucket List

Talk a stroll through the hidden history of London, and see some of the places that would have been familiar to William Shakespeare. It's the perfect marriage of contemporary streets and London's 400-year-old Tudor history.

What makes this walk so special is that at various points along the journey you will come across some Elizabethan actors and sonneteers, who will replay scenes from Shakespeare's life, or entertain you with some of his finest prose and poetry.

Note: There are actually two different walks to choose from. The eastern walk begins in Shoreditch, where the original theatre was built in 1576, and the western walk begins in Westminster. Both walks will come to a finish outside the Globe. You will be provided with a route map at the starting point.
