Half the tour was blatant marketing for upcoming shows and what's going on in the theater. We expected more history and tales about the origins of the globe, Shakespeare and associates, and the history of his time. Cool to see it but don't expect to...More

The Globe is a truest magical experience even if you are not into Shakespeare, just have a quick review of the synopsis before you go, then sit back and absorb what Elizabethan theatre would have been like. The cast will be excellent and language a...More

The most wonderful place you will ever go to in order to see Shakespeare. Due to the fact that 500 ‘groundlings” are present for every performance, the atmosphere is brilliant. The actors regularly stomp through the audience to get to the stage, and engage with...More

I used to watch the theatre being built in my lunch break some 20 odd years ago and couldn’t wait until it opened so I could visit but different circumstances meant that I didn’t get to actually go inside for a tour until today. We...More

We went to see As You Like It at the Globe theatre in late August. We opted for seats in the upstairs galleries, which gave an excellent view and afforded a little comfort. Many audience members choose to stand close to the stage, as this...More

I saw As You Like It. It was magical. Seeing Shakespeare on this stage, where audiences have been laughing and crying at the very same lines for hundreds of years, surrounded by the crowd and so close to the actors ... well, the energy is...More

I booked tickets 4 weeks in advance to see Hamlet at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre and I can say that it was definitely money well spent. The Theatre is really really nice and situated in the center of the city so you can get the chance...More

I’ve studied Shakespeare quite a bit in school, so I couldn’t pass the chance to visit the recreation of his theater. They attempt to keep conditions close to those from Shakespeare’s days to preserve the authentic experience. So, if you catch a play, don’t expect...More

My daughter and I love theatre and we really like the globe. If you like good Shakespeare and want the real deal in central London then make the time. We were seated but standing looks like a great experience as well

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

I suggest you mail the Globe directly. From my experience they are very helpful and also good with their replies. Go onto their website and find the contact person or department you need. Good luck in your search and well... More
