Shakespeare's lodging
Shakespeare's lodging
We are walking Shakespeare's Way and have arrived in Oxford, but it is wet, it is Saturday afternoon, and it is very busy. We want to be out of here. But first, we must see where Shakespeare lodged when passing through Oxford. This is the site of the former Crown Tavern, owned by his friend John Davenant and almost certainly where he stayed.
Shakespeare's Way

Shakespeare's Way is a 146 mile long distance footpath from Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon to the Globe theatre in London. It follows as nearly as possible a route that Shakespeare may have taken between the two, but using footpaths, quiet lanes and towpaths, rather than his tracks, which are today's main roads.
