"Shakespeare’s Globe" – London/ England


Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse first built in 1599, where Shakespeare worked and for which he wrote many of his greatest plays. Each year audiences experience ‘the wooden O’ sitting in a gallery or standing as a groundling, just as they would have done 400 years ago. The annual theatre season runs from April to October, with 700 (£5) tickets available for every performance. Productions include work by Shakespeare as well as contemporary writers.

Theatre tours:

Throughout the year, a fascinating tour of the theatre is included in a visit to Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition. The guiders bring this extraordinary space to life in a half-hour tour of the auditorium, with colourful stories of the 1599 Globe, the reconstruction process in the 1990s and how the auditorium works today as an maginative and experimental theatre space. During the matinee performances in the theatre visitors will be taken to the nearby site of Bankside’s first theatre: The Rose.


Shakespeare’s Globe exhibition is the world´s largest and most comprehensive exhibition devoted to Shakespeare and the London in which he lived and worked. Housed beneath the Globe Theatre, the Exhibition uses modern technology and traditional crafts to bring Shakespeare’s world to life. Imagine the Globe as it would have been: the centre of what was once London’s most notorious entertainment district, surrounded by raucous taverns and bawdy-houses.
