Description

Your expert guide will bring this extraordinary open-air theatre to life in a 50 minute guided tour of the auditorium. Listen to colorful stories of the 1599 Globe, the reconstruction process in the 1990s, and how the building works today as an imaginative and experimental theatre space. Admire the architecture of the playhouse, an accurate reconstruction of the building where Shakespeare worked, and for which he wrote many of his most famous plays. Take a seat within this wooden O and listen, absorb, and ask questions as the secrets of the Globe unfold. In the walk-through exhibition space, you’ll be immersed in the sights, sounds, and secrets of Shakespeare’s London, travelling through over 400 years of fascinating history. You’ll be able to relive some of our most iconic shows with seasonally curated displays, and even have the chance to get ready for the stage yourself with interactive costumes and props.
