Description
Shakespeare’s Globe
Shakespeare’s Globe is an authentic reconstruction of the open-air playhouse first built in 1599, where the famous playwright worked and for which he wrote many of his greatest plays! After opening in 1997, the reconstructed Globe is today a working theatre and much-loved attraction for fans of The Bard.

Exhibition & Theatre Tour 
The world’s largest visitor experience devoted to Shakespeare, the Globe’s Exhibition & Theatre Tour imagines the Globe as it would have been, surrounded by raucous taverns and bawdy-houses! Find out about extravagant Elizabethan costumes and how 16th century musical instruments were used. There are also special temporary exhibitions that change throughout the year, with live demonstrations that bring Shakespeare’s world to life!

You will have a 30 minute guided tour of the Globe Theatre, with expert guided storytellers colourfully recreating stories of the 1599 Globe and the reconstruction process in the 1990’s.
