Shakespeare’s Printers and Playscripts Walking Tour

Bankside

Join us for this very special Printers & Playscripts Walking Tour to mark the 400th anniversary of the First Folio, a collection of (almost) all the Shakespeare plays that we know of and one of the most influential books ever published.

As you explore the Bankside area and venture across the River Thames into the historic heart of printing in London around St Paul’s, our expert Guides will share the colourful history of printing in Britain and what it meant to Shakespeare’s world.

You’ll also delve into the world of banned books and bad quartos, and learn what it took to become a printmaker in the Early Modern period.

This is a walking tour of the Bankside area and does not include a visit into the Globe Theatre.
