South Bank – Shakespeare

Further west along the Thames, at Waterloo Bridge is another Shakespeare connection. On the pavement in front of the National Theatre there is a statue of Sir Laurence Olivier as Hamlet. After a distinguished career in film and on the stage, from 1963 to 1973, Olivier was the founding director of the National Theatre.
