    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.

    As £11 mais bem investidas em todo o passeio por Londres. Os guias são maravilhosos, a interpretação patrimonial é fantástica. Uma dica: Assistam Shakespeare in Love antes da visita! ;)

    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. http://bit.ly/1rbsgcH
