Clowns and Clubs

Shakespeare was here. From the site of London’s first purpose-built theatre, we see how the performing arts have developed, from Music Hall to modern theatre, from Hitchcock’s films to video art and from Clowns to Cirque du Soleil. Enjoy a mix of historic churches, beautiful houses and trendy bars, restaurants and clubs. Head for the herb garden, continuing Hoxton’s horticultural tradition.
