Shakespeare's Globe

Local nameShakespeare's Globe
LocationLondon, UK

Come see the modern replica of the theatre where some of Shakespeare's plays were staged for the first time.

The original theatre was built in 1599 by the Lord Chamberlain's Men, Shakespeare's playing company. It was located roughly 250m far from where the Globe Theatre stands now.

The present-day theatre was established by Sam Wanamaker, an American actor and director, who made it his mission to restore the original Elizabethan theatre when he moved to the UK. The building was finished in 1997 and in 2014, an indoor theatre called Sam Wanamaker Playhouse was added to the site.

If you want to see a performance in the Globe, consider buying your tickets online so you would not need to worry about them being sold out. Apart from seeing a play, you can also take part in a guided tour.

Inside the building connected to the theatre, you will find a gift shop with many Shakespeare-themed souvenirs.
