#plaque366 The Rose Theatre
The Rose Theatre, Park Street SE1
It’s an unusual situation down in Southwark that the first Elizabethan playhouse on Bankside is topped in the popular imagination by the second. William Shakespeare’s Globe is remembered as the crucible of the language. And the new version remains a vibrant artistic center and great London attraction.
But The Rose got there first.
Open by the late 1580s (the original Globe dates from 1599) it suffered the slings and arrows (to borrow from its neighbour, the bard of Stratford) of outrageous fortune in the shape of bubonic plague outbreaks (during which the theatres were closed) and stiff competition from the bear bating nearby. Squeezed out of business by the Globe, it was abandoned in 1605.
A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
