Nice remodel of original Globe. Informative tour that takes about an hour. It has copies of period dress and additional items to view.

Just seen Othello. Staff 10/10 , friendly and very interactive. Actors ( think all am/dram ) excellent. If not for London noise it was 16th century. Globe 10/10

We were in the shade but at 32c outside the heat was unbearable. Along with a lot of others I left in the interval. Otherwise good views, most actors could be heard and the seats were OK with a cushion

Watched a production of As you like it , as it was intended open air and very much fun. The only issue was finding a cab to get us back to our hotel after the performance.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
