Ce que vous allez faire
This is an exclusive experience for a maximum of eight guests featuring visits to places that larger groups rarely experience. 430 years ago, the young William Shakespeare left his wife and children in Stratford to start a new life in London. Rising from obscurity to superstar, he cut a swath through London society, attracting admirers, lawsuits and the odd begging letter. As a young actor, he lived in rented accommodation and got into trouble for not paying his taxes. By the end of his life, he owned property in fashionable Blackfriars. Starting near St Paul’s Cathedral, we will visit the places he lived and worked, taking in some of the most beautiful sites in London. Along the way we will encounter the unfortunate Jewish doctor who inspired Shakespeare to create Shylock, tour London's first theatre, visit Stationers' Hall where the earliest printed copies of Shakespeare's works were registered and view the site where kidnapped boys were forced to perform by unscrupulous playhouse managers.
I am a lawyer, historian and official City of London tour guide. Introducing guests to the splendours and secrets of my hometown is my passion. I try to make my tours a mixture of fun and fact (with some of the facts being funny and some of the fun being factual). With more than 35 years experience of hosting visitors to the City and access to sites that are not generally open or known to the public, I give my guests a true insider's perspective. Please contact me to arrange a private tour that will make your visit to London truly memorable. All of my income from guiding is donated to charity
