London – Shakespeare 8

Only mentioned in passing on the self-guided “Shakespeare’s London” walk, is the actual former site of the Fortune Theatre. It is on Fortune Street which is hidden away in the Golden Lane Estate, north of the Barbican. We stumbled across it by accident while looking for Bunhill Fields Cemetery (which will be the subject of future blogs). When we passed the Shakespeare Pub on the corner of Goswell Road and Fann Street, we knew we must be near something Shakespearean.
