Highlights

  • Located on the bank of the River Thames
  • Reconstruction of the Globe Theater 
  • Resembles the original Elizabethan playhouse
The Globe is the premier location in London to see revivals of Shakespeare's classics. The theater stands a few hundred yards from the original globe where Shakespeare himself saw his plays first performed by English-playing companies. That building was shut down in 1642 when England’s Puritan administration ordered the closure of all the theaters. No longer of use, it was demolished to make room for tenements in 1644.
