Southwark Cathedral: St Saviours Church Tour - Shakespeare and his Theatrical Contemporaries


This Shakespeare Day join one of the knowledgeable Cathedral Guides to learn about the links between St Saviours church and the theatre.

"At the heart of William Shakespeare’s theatrical world was the church of St Saviours, now known as Southwark Cathedral. This was the scene of baptisms, burials and marriages for the actors and playwrights who graced the stage of Elizabethan and Stuart theatre."

Cathedral Guides undertake extensive training to learn 900 years of Cathedral history and volunteer their time to deliver tour and walks for the Cathedral. Many of them also work as City of London Guides and Greenwich Guides and are very knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects that they share with those who attend their tours"
