April 7, 2014,
London at Canary Wharf, England

This summer, Four Seasons Hotel London at Canary Wharf is giving its guests the chance to go in search of Shakespeare. A fascinating look into the life of the famous Bard, the Shakespearean London Day Experience makes for the perfect day out for anyone wanting to discover the city in which he lived and worked.

Guests will board the Thames Clipper and set sail for London’s Bankside, admiring many of the city’s historic monuments along the way from the River Thames before making their way to The Globe Theatre for a fascinating visit to the world’s largest and most comprehensive exhibition devoted to Shakespeare. After having explored the many interactive displays that highlight the remarkable story of the struggle to rebuild the Globe, admiring his works, browsing the costumes and taking in the live demonstrations, guests will then move on to the theatre to watch one of Shakespeare’s renowned plays, be it Romeo and Juliet or perhaps A Midsummer’s Night Dream.

Following a boat trip back to Four Seasons Hotel London at Canary Wharf, guests will join the Hotel’s culinary team for a master class in preparing a medieval feast while younger guests will be able to create their very own Shakespearean sonnets as taught by the Head Concierge before sitting down to tuck into the freshly prepared dinner. Upon successfully completing the experience, guests will receive a certificate and will also find a Shakespearean-themed souvenir in their room.
