This Funzing Experience:

The Life and Work of the Bard in London

Walk through history and discover the Real London whilst hearing how the rise of theatre in 16th century London changed the face of riverside Southwark - from early performances in the yards of coaching inns and England's first permanent playhouses to the arrival in the capital of one William Shakespeare, and from the sites of the famous Rose and Globe theatres to their modern iterations, as you make your way across the Thames and into the ancient area of Blackfriars to hear about a controversial indoor theatre and the only known London property purchased by Shakespeare himself.

This ninety to one hundred minutes (an hour and a half to an hour and forty minutes) tour starts at Borough station (Northern line) and ends close to Blackfriars station (District and Circle lines).
