Our London Theatre History travel seminar has been booking Declan's Shakespeare walking tour for over 6 years! Many bits of information included along a rambling walk through the passages of London, you wouldn't know to notice. Our students love it and loved the inclusion of some of Shakespeare's words performed by Declan at key moments along the way. Will continue to book this, as long as we are able!

An engaging, educational and entertaining tour. Declan has a deep knowledge and love for the subject and shares his knowledge with enthusiasm and passion. Sharing some little known gems within a walkable area and bringing colour to the subject with some original insights backed up with evidence whilst retaining some mystery about this most famous literary genius. The time flew by and the price is very reasonable for a london tour and much better value than many other attractions. For Shakespeare enthusiasts, historians and those with even a passing interest in people and places. Declan offers helpful direction to guests to ensure all can enjoy what he has to share in a friendly, professional and courteous environment.

Fantastic tour guided by Declan who shared his knowledge of Shakespeare with facts, story telling, acting out scenes and taking us to hidden places significant to the bard. We also saw parts of London we would never have otherwise. Highly recommend.

We took this tour a little while ago and boy was it fantastic. Declan was a tremendously charismatic guide and kept the tour engaging whilst moving between locations. Full of knowledge about the local area he led us around North of the river and took us to some very tucked away areas of interest that we really would have struggled to find on our own, much less have been aware of. As we were the only people on the tour it felt like having our own personal font of Shakespeare knowledge escorting us around. Declan recommend some truly fantastic pubs in the area and even walked with us to the local tube station once the tour had finished. Genuinely lovely experience with a great guide.

This was really worth doing, it was a small group which made getting around nice and easy, is a well informed tour and uncovers lots of 'hidden' treasures weaving into small alleys. Declan is very good and does some great recitals too. He knows his stuff and made it very interesting.

Spent 2 hours with our guide Declan who is so very knowledgeable of the topic of William Shakespeare. He met our group outside the tube station and led us through wonderful facts and insight in a topic that he has a great deal of passion about. He took us to parts of the Blackfriers relating tidbits of history that we did not know. He gave us an appreciation for one of the worlds great writers and gave us a peak into the mind of a master. It is obvious that Declan’s expertises (he has a post-graduate degree in English literature) and a style that will make you feel at ease with the topic. You can tell that he is half actor and half teacher and 100 percent genuine.
This is a 2 hour walking tour, so be sure to wear your walking shoes. The walk is even ground with a few stairs a few minor changes in elevation. He will do his best to his best to accommodate slower participants but you will be on your feet for the entire time.
He also does a serial killer tour of London that I can only imagine is outstanding.

Fantastic tour by Declan 💯 It’s obvious he’s very knowledgeable about Shakespeare and admires the man greatly. The tour is interspersed with story telling and hidden parts of London. He kept it engaging and interesting. Would highly recommend to those who love a walking tour.

Declan was a true delight and a wonderful find. We were essentially on a private tour as the other persons did not show up, Lucky us! Although he doesn't take us to the Globe Theater on the other side of the Thames; Declan takes us on a fascinating walking tour of unknown gems that are hidden in plain sight in today's London Black Friar area. I can't wait to read his book on Shakespeare in London as his tour was informative , interesting and fun! Highly recommend it!

A beautiful sunny morning strolling through Shakespeare's London - north of the river. Declan was very knowledgable and took us to places we would never have found on our own. It was a very enjoyable way of passing a couple of hours in the City.

Declan, our guide, was excellent. We had a terrific time following him around little alleys and small corners of the City as he showed us monuments and places connected to Shakespeare while answering to all the questions we had. It was a highly informative tour and we found out so many hidden gems about Shakespeare that you wouldn't find anywhere else! Definitely recommended!
