Enjoy a guided tour of the Globe Theatre and immerse yourselves in the world of Shakspeare!

The iconic Globe Theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse in which Shakespeare worked, and for which he wrote many of his most famous plays!

An expert guide will provide a fascinating 50-minute tour of the Globe Theatre auditorium, vividly recreating colorful stories of the 1599 Playhouse, the London Shakespeare would have known and the Globe reconstruction process in the 1990s.

Get ready to be amazed as the theatre comes to life and explore how the ‘wooden ‘O’’ works today as an imaginative and experimental space for performance.
