The Life of Shakespeare Tour

in conjunction with

Cassidy Cash That Shakespeare Girl Logo

Walk in the Footsteps of Shakespeare

There is no better way to understand Shakespeare than to visit the places where his story is told. You will literally walk in the Bard's footsteps, from birth to grave. During this 5 day tour you visit Stratford-upon-Avon and London. In Stratford you will stand in the house, and even the room, in which Shakespeare was born! Visit his schoolroom, the site of his house in Stratford, the place he courted his wife, Anne Hathaway, dine at his daughter's house and visit his grave.  In London we will visit the Globe theatre as well as take a walk around Southwark to the site of the original Rose theatre!

The tour is led by Cassidy Cash, That Shakespeare Girl and Philippa Lacey Brewell of British History Tours and British History with Philippa Lacey Brewell.

Shakespeare Tour 2019 - Itinerary

Day One - 16th September
Meet at our designated meeting point near London Victoria Station at 1pm, board our private air-conditioned coach and travel directly to Stratford upon Avon where we will be greeted at the historic, White Swan Hotel. Enjoy some free time to settle in before our evening meal together.

Day Two - 17th September
We spend the day with our VIP guide exploring Stratford and the places significant to Shakespeare's story: Shakespeare's Birthplace, Schoolroom, New Place and his grave before a private evening tour and dinner at Shakespeare's daughter's magnificent home, Halls Croft.

Day Three - 18th September

Today we will visit places very familiar to the younger Shakespeare; Mary Arden's Farm and Anne Hathaway's cottage. As a small boy growing up, Shakespeare would have spent time on the farm. It is run as a working farm, echoing the practices and routines which Shakespeare himself would recognise.  At Anne Hathaway's cottage Shakeapeare courted the girl that was to be his wife and mother to his three children.

In the evening we will meet for a 3-course sit down dinner.

Day Four - 19th September

We head off early on our private air-conditioned coach to London! After checking into our hotel we visit the Globe Theatre with a private guided tour and a demonstration of stage fighting. We will also have chance to explore the area of Bankside, once the entertainment centre of London, away from the strict City of London authorities north of the river!

We will have a lovely sit down meal together in the evening and potentially see a play at the Globe! (Please note that this can not be confirmed until the season is announced in Spring 2019)

Day Five - 20th September
Our final morning toghether will be an exciting journey by boat to Westminster where we will take a walk past the Houses of Parliament and Downing Street to visit Banqueting House, the last remaining part of Whitehall Palace. We then go on up through Traflaguar Square to the National Portrait Gallery where we visit the first ever portrait in their collection, the one of Shakespeare!

We will return to the hotel where you can pick up your luggage and we say our goodbyes.
