William Shakespeare Group Tour

William Shakespeare Group Tour

William Shakespeare Group Tour

Generally thought of as the greatest English writer of all time, certainly the greatest playwright and poet, Shakespeare was a master at fusing the popular genres of history, tragedy and comedy. Originally an actor himself, he brought theatre to the masses with masterpieces such as Hamlet, King Lear and Romeo and Juliet, while his history plays were often strategically written to please the reigning monarch. Discover Shakespearean London, watch a play at The Globe, explore the picturesque corner of England where he grew up and visit his famous Birthplace.

Tour Highlights

  • The Globe, on the site of Shakespeare's original theatre and reconstructed to resemble the original playhouse, including a backstage tour and exhibition.
  • Walking tour of London on life in Shakespeare's time.

What Our Clients Say

I was very fortunate to be on their 70th and 75th D-Day celebration tours. The service and attention to details was exceptional. It was very moving to go back.

As a Jane Austen enthusiast, this tour was perfect - and the Jane Austen Festival in Bath was just fabulous to see!

Words fail me...The Downton Abbey was a perfectly wonderful travel experience! We did not know we would be the ONLY guests at the Abbey. When we realised how truly exclusive our tour was we were speechless! Surreal being there and actually meeting Lady Carnarvon.
