Overview

“All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances.” And now you can see the famous exits and entrances where some of the world’s most respected actors have come on stage to re-enact the plays that have thrilled for hundreds of years. The Globe theatre is a completely faithful reconstruction of the open-air theatre built in 1599, for which Shakespeare wrote many plays; this tour experience for two will really familiarise you with Shakespeare’s world, life, London and theatre. You’ll enjoy a fabulous guided tour with an enthusiastic guide, who’ll tell fun stories of the original Globe and explain the reconstruction process hundreds of years later. Enjoy exciting live demonstrations in The Guided Tour Welcome and Demonstration Space at various times throughout the day, which include Elizabethan clothing dressings, stage fighting and printing the plays using a replica 17th-century printing press.

Interesting to say the least
13 September 2020
My friend came to visit from Wales so I surprised her with a trip to Shakespeare’s Globe as she mentioned she'd like to go. I'll be honest, this isn't normally my type of thing to do, but the tour was enjoyable and the guide knew everything there was to know.

We didn’t go behind the scenes or on the stage which was disappointing as I already know the Globe quite well from previous visits to see plays there. However, I’d have paid the money just to listen to our amazing guide. He was enthusiastic, articulate, knowledgable and a brilliant storyteller, he should have been an actor.

Excellent tour and intriguing exhibition
23 August 2017
The Globe tour was excellent: Glenys our guide, was knowledgeable, interesting and informative. We had a peek into aspects of the place you'd never normally see. She kept making little humorous asides, like Shakespeare's characters do, and made the tour come alive with many little titbits of facts and details of the plays and running of the place. The exhibition was comprehensive, giving a vast amount of information on the history of the site, the origins of the Globe and its sister theatres, with examples of costumes, musical instruments, props, building materials and tools, and demonstrations of how actors are dressed for the traditional costumes. Plenty to see, places to eat, and a good shop too.
