Robert, the head honcho of the Meetup behemoth which is 'The London Cultureseekers' dresses up in Elizabethan vestments and really puts his heart and soul into his walk. Costing a mere £5 (free if you're a member of Cultureseekers, which is only £12 per annum...More
This is an excellent tour. Robert is incredibly knowledgeable and gave us a lot of interesting information on Shakespeare and other relevant people in his life. I learned a lot and discovered many new places I did not know existed despite having lived in London...More
The guided walk was very good (just right for the 'ol bones)! Found Robert to be knowledgeable and informative and the details provided to be very interesting...even the outfit :-) Loved the ending & the quotes given especially. I would most definitely recommend the walk...More
I have been to several guided walks with various other groups so have a good feel of what to expect. Quite honestly Roberts Shakespeare walk today blew me away.
Well researched, well presented, wasn't too short, wasn't too long. It really was superb. I have...More

He sets the scene brilliantly, with historical details and his own costume, and gives a well-informed and enjoyable performance, as he tells us about Shakespeare's life and writing. I would definitley recommend this walk...More

...for fans of CultureSeekers, Robert does this type of outing particularly well. I've previously trawled around Lambeth with him on the trail of Charlie Chaplin and the tale of the Bard was just as good. Robert covers all of the ground ( literally and metaphorically...More
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
