“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”
Visit Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and indulge yourself in a unique experience in the theater that has been linked with William Shakespeare.
Stand and watch a performance inside the Elizabethan theatre for which William Shakespeare wrote and live the experience of another era with plays presented as close as possible to the original setting and conditions.
The original theatre called Globe Theatre was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1613 when a special effect on stage went wrong.
The Globe Theatre was reconstructed for the third and final time in 1997 close to the original site in Southwark with as much historical detail as could be found and today has the name Shakespeare’s Globe.
Whether you decide to live this experience as a spectator or as a groundling in the pit, Shakespeare’s Globe is a theatre you should definitely visit… when in London!
2018’s Shakespeare productions include Hamlet, As You Like It, The Two Noble Kinsmen, The Winter’s Tale, Othello and Love’s Labour’s Lost.
Even if you’re not attending a play, you can do the Globe Exhibition and Tour. Open all year round, the tour explores the life and work of Shakespeare and theatre in his time.
