Delve into the history of theatre and explore one of London’s most iconic landmarks with this fascinating tour of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
William Shakespeare is often regarded as the world’s greatest ever playwright, and Shakespeare’s Globe gives the ideal opportunity to experience the incredible works of the great man and his magnificent theatre.
See the beautifully reconstructed theatre on the bankside of the Thames, situated just a few hundred yards from the original site which was built in 1599, where an expert guide will be on hand to take you on a fascinating tour of the iconic globe, bringing the theatre to life with colourful stories of 16th century drama.
Explore the exhibition beneath the stage, with a complimentary audio guide to provide additional insights and background to early theatre productions, from writing and rehearsals to costume and music, and even how sound effects were created in the theatre more than 400 years ago.
To complete the experience, a delicious two-course meal will be served from a set-menu at a nearby restaurant - choices include: Planet Hollywood, Prezzo, Fire and Stone and Spaghetti House. Restaurant sittings are usually at 13:00 and 18:00 - please confirm meal times when booking.
Please note: Shakespeare’s Globe is a working theatre, therefore, opening hours and tour times are subject to change. During matinee performances in the theatre, visitors will be taken to the nearby site of Bankside’s first theatre: The Rose.
