    This stunning building is a historical rebuild of the original building. So it's cold in November. Bring a blanket

    The five pound standing room only tickets are a great deal, particularly if you are a student.

    This place is the best. If you want to see how Shakespeare was performed in the old days, this is where you should be. 5£ standing tickets are a steal, if you are tall an young enough

    You can only see it from outside but it's still worth it.

  • Andrew M.

    With hundreds of daily grounding tickets for £5 each and a tremendous selection of plays each season, going to see a show at the Globe is a must do for any Londoner.

  • Ewa S.

    Amazing tours - the guides have wonderful stories to share and they do it all in a really funny manner

    Ewa Stoczewska · July 22
  • Pete M.

    Just the best place ever. Spend £5 on standing among the groundlings - you get the best view, you get to interact with the actors, and it's the cheapest ticket available.

    Pete Marcus · July 17
  • John B.

    Fantastic productions of Shakespeare plays. Cheap as chips if you're willing to stand.

    John Booth · July 13
  • EArchitect

    If planning to queue for same day ticket sales, arrive at least an hour before the play begins.

    The smell of wood, unique architecture, traces of Sheakspeare.. Especially, King John was fascinating..

    It's like NYC's Shakespeare in a Park. Except in a theater. And, like, the real thing. Read more

    Amazing reconstruction of the original Shakespeare's theater. Makes you feel like you're actually part of the play!

    I've been there for Shakespeare Festival to watch A Midsummer Night's Dream. The atmosphere was extremely amazing. Take your beer and stand at the yard, ticket is only £5.

  • Katherine M.

    Check the calendar to see if there'll be a show when you visit!

    A recreation of the original Shakespeare theatre that burnt down. Looks rather modern and fake in some ways.

    Elizabeth Lee · November 23, 2014
  • Joseph M.

    Went to see Julius Caesar. We had seats on the upper level and actually they were pretty good! Fortunately they're built steep enough for your view not to be blocked by the person in front.

    Joseph McDermott · November 23, 2014
  • Peter v.

    Theatre at its best

    For £5 you can get a groundling ticket and experience Shakespeare the way it was meant to be. It'll be the best fiver you've ever spent.

    Jenna Anderson · October 9, 2014
  • Megan D.

    Great show The Comedy of Errors!

    Megan Denny · October 6, 2014
  • Lauren

    There's nothing like a show at the Globe, but hopping on a tour of the grounds is almost as good to soak up the atmosphere from the gallery, the ground and through your camera.

    Lauren · October 4, 2014
  • Ana L.

    Amazing setting!!! Watching a play there is something worth experiencing. If you don't want to pay much choose standing tickets (5 pounds and right by the stage!)

    Ana Lara · October 1, 2014
  • Valentina C.

    Do not save money on pillows. Bring your drink in the venue.

    A must do! An experience of a lifetime.

    Shakespeare aside, the theatre itself is wonderful with every seat guaranteed to see action at all times. Expensive yes, but certainly worth it.

    Jason Hirst · August 28, 2014
  • Alex H.

    Watching Shakespeare here breathes a whole different life into his texts (in the right hands). Experience the plays as they were meant to be experienced. Seriously cheap standing tickets at £5.

    Alex Hay · August 15, 2014
  • Olga T.

    If you really want to get there, you better buy tickets beforehand. The day before the play they can be sold out.

    Olga Tsybulska · August 14, 2014

    You have to watch Shakespeare here! The atmosphere is awesome.
