Globe Theatre

  • 21 New Globe Walk, London SE1 9DT
  • Capacity:

Located on the bank of the River Thames in Bankside's Cultural Quarter, Shakespeare's Globe welcomes thousands of visitors to experience world renowned productions of Shakespeare every day. Founded by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, Shakespeare's Globe stands a few hundred yards from its original site. Other than concessions to comply with modern day fire regulations, the Globe is as accurate a reconstruction of the 1599 Globe as was possible with the available evidence. Shakespeare's Globe is best accessed on foot. There are excellent footpaths along the river from Waterloo and from Southwark Bridge. The Millennium Footbridge is 50 metres from the Theatre.
