This was our second visit to The Globe to see Macbeth. It was the enclosed one (with roof). Customer Service was excellent and organised. It is so small, compact and beautiful with a great atmosphere. Unlike the openair Globe this one has padded seating. Although...More

We spent a good two and a half hours inside The Globe and it was a wonderful experience. We had travelled to London by train for the weekend so we had downloaded a voucher for two for a one entrance fee and just had to...More

Let’s start with - this isn’t the actual theater and it isn’t on the original site. However, it is an extremely good historical recreation, using original techniques and materials and it is very close to the original site of the Globe. I have been to...More

Staff greeted us at the front door warmly and directed us where to go for tour info. Tour was very informative and interesting. Even my 14 year old perked up with interest in the Globe theatre!

So, turns out that even if you're in London in a season (like, say, winter) when there aren't any performances at the Globe, you can still take a guided tour. It took just under an hour, and our tour guide, Tom, was great. I learned...More

I thought I was fairly familiar with Shakespeare, having studied it at school but I was pleasantly surprised to learn about the history of the famous playwright, the 'going-on's' at the Globe and in society in its' hey day'. Although this is only a replica...More

Took the tour of the theater. It was worth every bit of the ticket price. Jane was a great guide. Ask to be on her tour if you have the option.

Glad I went, never really been into Shakespeare but was still very interesting. Never knew the history of the globe and so was disappointed to hear it wasn’t the original but it is what is. Good trip of any child studying Shakespeare.

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

The official site does post the charge for under 15 compared with student rate for group tours. Perhaps that might help a bit.

The theatre being based upon a medieval reconstruction has no traditional stage door as might now be the case. The actor/cast have to use the same entry and exit as any other person.
