The Globe Theatre, founded by Sam Wanamaker, is a faithful reconstruction of the Elizabethan playhouse! Ideal for supporting both school work plus curious and poetical minds, this dose of hearty antique culture can provide a charming day for families with older children.
Throughout the year, a fascinating guided tour of the theatre is included in your visit to Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition, bringing this extraordinary space to life.
Experience today's working theatre and visit the world of Bankside, the Soho of Elizabethan London and follow Sam's struggle to recreate an authentic Globe for future generations. Open throughout the year, Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition is one of the most exciting ways to discover and rediscover the Globe Theatre.
Alongside the permanent exhibitions special temporary exhibitions are also held throughout the year that are also well worth a visit.
Shakespeare’s Globe is perfect for an exciting, educational day out!
