London Day 18: The Shakespeare Walk

One of the two scheduled walks for our trip (the other is the Jack the Ripper Tour, which I missed), the Shakespeare Walk began in London proper and continued in Bankside. It was a great tour: we crossed the London Bridge, saw the George Inn, several alleys mentioned by Shakespeare and Dickens, the site of Chaucer’s Tabard Inn, St. Saviour's Church (wherein rests Edmund Shakespeare, Wil’s brother who died of the plague), Drake’s Golden Hind, the Anchor Pub where Dr. Johnson used to hang, the site of the original Globe theatre, and a beautiful sunset over London. The tour guide and some of us faculty had a pint after the tour.
