Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Home > Attractions > Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition and theatre tour offer a fascinating introduction to the world-famous Globe Theatre and life in Shakespeare's London.

Discover Elizabethan Bankside - the city of London's playground, see a sword-fighting display, find out how actors are dressed in handmade costumes and take a tour of todays working theatre - brought vividly to life by one of our story-teller guides.

The expert guides will take you on a fascinating tour of the iconic Globe Theatre and auditorium, bringing the space to life with colourful stories of the 1599 Globe, of the reconstruction process in the 1990s, and of how the "wooden O" works today as an imaginative and experimental theatrical space.

Tours begin every 15-30 minutes.
