Again as a Londoner I had never been inside the theatre, although I have picked people up from there a couple of times!
As we had been to the Oxo Tower for lunch and were walking towards London Bridge and had time to spare ,we decided to pop into the Globe and and do the tour. We were very lucky to catch the 2 30pm tour, especially as the tour guide [who I think was called Ruth] was so knowledgable and really brought the tour alive.
Yes, there were carpenters building the stage for the Tempest, but that only added to the enjoyment, imagining that many centuries ago Elizabethan carpenters would also have built the stage for The Tempest, albeit without electric drills and saws!!
We enjoyed the exhibition before the tour and would have liked to have spent more time there. A really enjoyable hour or so. I even want to go and see a Shakespeare play there now!
Well worth a visit, but do have more than an hour to spend there.
