My first visit to the Globe was enchanting. I watched an unknown play in the Two Noble Kinsmen. The experience was fantastic. After deciding against standing for £5 we opted for seats on the lower circle which gave us a great view of the show....More

I loved this! It was incredible to be at Shakespeare’s Globe, learn it’s history and how they rebuilt. My only regret - not allowing enough time to catch a show.

This little-known play of William Shakespeare is a hit! We saw a matinee performance from the gallery, but those standing seemed to be having a good time as well. Brilliant performance, dancing, singing, and joy! It doesn't matter that the story is a bit mad--that...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
