The site of the Rose Theatre, the first Elizabethan theatre on London's Bankside where Shakespeare learned his craft, where he had his first plays performed and where he probably acted. The Rose was also the venue for the plays of Shakespeare's famous contemporary, Christopher Marlowe. The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare?s Globe just a few hundred meters away.
