Shakespeare's Globe Guided Tours

Shakespeare's Globe on Bankside
Book Now Visit now to explore without the crowds
Shakespeare's Globe Guided Tours offer a fascinating introduction to the world-famous Globe Theatre and life in Shakespeare's London.


The iconic Globe Theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the open-air playhouse in which Shakespeare worked, and for which he wrote many of his most famous plays.

Expert guide-storytellers provide a fascinating 50-minute tour of the Globe Theatre auditorium Tuesday to Sunday, vividly recreating colourful stories of the 1599 Playhouse, the London Shakespeare would have known and the Globe reconstruction process in the 1990s.

Their guides will also bring the theatre to life for visitors, exploring how the ‘wooden ‘O’’ works today as an imaginative and experimental space for performance.

Tours are available in English only, with written information available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Japanese or Simplified Chinese.
