Shakespeare's Globe is a unique international resource dedicated to Shakespeare's work and the playhouse for which he wrote, through performances and education.
Shakespeare globe theatre from the 1500's. We walked in while they were rehearsing for a new play. Excellent place for a historical visit and the tour was very informative! Have fun while you can.
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
The Globe is authentically Shakespearean, meaning you'll be sitting on an uncomfortable, cramped wooden bench and watching a play with limited props in a building with no roof. Still, it's worth it.
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.
Brilliant night. But recommend: Seated tickets (Shakespeare plays are long), £1 cushions (hard wooden benches), a blanket (it gets cold at night) and the pulled pork sandwiches (cash only).
The vision of American actor Sam Wanamaker, this replica of Shakespeare’s legendary theatre opened near the site of the original in 1997. It has the first thatched roof in London since the Great Fire.
For dinner after a play (or before outside in the sun), go to Tas Pide just to the right of the box office on New Globe Walk. Excellent Turkish cuisine, open late and not expensive!
It is worth paying a little more for a seat (£5 for a cushion) ratehr than standing for the longer productions. You can even enjoy a glass of wine in the theatre whilst you watch a play!
Shakespeare's Globe, a reconstruction of the legendary theatre offers standing tickets in summer in the "yard" for £5 and offer the best view of the Bard's plays. Kristin Knox, The Clothes Whisperer
A magnificent experience! Get tickets well in advance - if you're travelling to London, buy online at least a month ahead. Keep in mind - this is an *open air* theater: you might want to bring somethi
I'm fond of theatre but this place isnt for everybody ®luar tourists.attended Hamlet-open theatre-in a rainy day!was Fab.They gave us blankets cuz it was cold&the show didnt stop.day show is better
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.
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
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.
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.
Delightful theatre and considering the upkeep of such a wonderful place, a unique experience to celebrate the wonderful world of Shakespeare.
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.
Guided tours of the facility are offered throughout the day in the theatre's winter off-season. From May to September, however, Globe tours are only available in the morning.
FANTASTIC overall experience! i would honestly recommend it to anyone who loves a good play, Shakespeare, historic feel or just wanna try out something new and unusual.
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!)
Amazing reconstructed original looking theatre, that always has showings of one of Shakespeare's numerous pieces of work performed by the Royal Shakespeare company. Book tickets in advance.
Shakespeare in beautiful surroundings. The Globe made our list of top 10 date venues in London, check out the rest here: http://flirtify.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/top-10-dates-in-london.html
Originally built in the 16th Century, this playhouse was authentically reconstructed in 1997 right down to the 12 million wooden pegs to hold it together
Fantastic venue, brilliant acting and terrivle, terrible audience. Ignorants, uncivilized and with no culture at all. The morons laugh all the time, even in the most dramatic scenes.
amazing place, love it. Different venues for different events, restaurant and a small concert room lit only by candles - friendly stuff too
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.
Watch out, their staff can be very snobby! One commanded me to move away from the cushion table 'now!' in an awful and disgraceful way! Other than this, it was a fine experience.
Great to see the "inside" of the Globe both physically and verbally. Unfortunately our tour guide was more interested to present herself than the theatre.
£5 a ticket to stand! It would be a shame to miss this great opportunity to see the inside of this great institution and to go back in time with a Shakespearian play! Enjoy!
Shakespeare aside, the theatre itself is wonderful with every seat guaranteed to see action at all times. Expensive yes, but certainly worth it.
Go see a play. Standing is fun and cheap but sitting will be more enjoyable on the second visit lol
Make sure you stand in the Yard for £5. Gallery seating is very fun, but terrible lack of legroom if you're over 6 feet tall. Macbeth is an awesome production.
Apparently you can get £5 standing ticket still, need to check what's on this summer and actually watch a performance
Doth myne eyes deceive me? Is it true that The Table is but moments away? Forsooth, my heart doth quicken, my tummy grumble! I shall away this instant. (We're just behind The Tate on Southwark St.)
Wear comfy shoes, take the plunge & be a Groundling! Fantastic view from the yard & only a Fiver a ticket ...what's not to like!!
One of the best places to watch Shakespeare ever! Get there early to lean on the stage :)
You can visit the theatre as a part of the whole theatre tour and exhibition only in the first part of the day before they start performances.
I recently saw a matinee performance at this great theatre, I really wanted to go to an evening performance as I thought the atmoshere would be better. I needn't have worried. The atmosphere was brill
Don't miss the tour, get Colin as your guide. So many interesting facts, a fun, charming and entertaining afternoon well spent.
Great value. For a fiver I got to see Mark Rylance in Richard lll. Got to do the groundling thing which is great fun, very interactive.
Original Shakespeare plays in a stunning location, which used to be partially owned by the bard himself. Keep an eye on our social programme for tickets to our next Shakespeare night!
This stunning building is a historical rebuild of the original building. So it's cold in November. Bring a blanket
I wish I went there during the summer to watch a play! The facts we were given is amazing! So worth the visit! :)
i pray that the younger generation of today can look back and ask themselves if they know who Shakespeare is. A lot would claim they do, but truth is, they don't!
If you really want to get there, you better buy tickets beforehand. The day before the play they can be sold out.
