Staff greeted us at the front door warmly and directed us where to go for tour info. Tour was very informative and interesting. Even my 14 year old perked up with interest in the Globe theatre!

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

The official site does post the charge for under 15 compared with student rate for group tours. Perhaps that might help a bit.

The theatre being based upon a medieval reconstruction has no traditional stage door as might now be the case. The actor/cast have to use the same entry and exit as any other person.
