Learn about the Bard of England! Come along to hear about the story of William Shakespeare's life and the London he lived in. Dressed in authentic Elizabethan costume, I will tell you about his family, friends, influences and how he changed the English language. On the walk we will visit the grave of his brother, visit a 17th century tavern and see the Rose and Globe theatres.

It was indeed a marvelous way of learning the past. Amazing presentation by Robert. I must say, he's got British talent and the knowledge to do it.

I graduated with a degree in English Literature last year, but I learnt a lot on this walk, with the facts being given in an engaging, interesting way. An informative afternoon with a friendly bunch of people and a traditional pub at the end
