Shakespeare's Globe, London Reviews - Write a Review

  • Definitely worth a trip. Standing entry is very affordable - about £5 a ticket. It's fun to see some Shakespeare actually performed at the globe. Food and drinks are available to purchase before the show and during intermission. These are a little bit expensive, but definitely not unreasonable given that you're purchasing at an entertainment venue. Be aware that the standing section is not covered, so you'll get wet if it rains, and you're not permitted to use an umbrella.

  • I always enjoy visiting the globe. The theatre tour is interesting and informative and the performances are magnificent. The various adaptations of Shakespeare's plays are well thought out and truly engage the audience. I would definitely recommend standing in the Yard to view a performance at least once, but wear comfy shoes and, if you are not able to stand for a couple of hours, book early, as seating is snapped up quickly.

  • Another great place to learn about the Bard! Guided tours run about every 30 minutes and well worth doing and learning more about the times of Elizabeth the First and Shakespeare. The Globe is based on the original theatre and not a bad seat in the house. If visiting during performance season take in a show as there is always a twist to it either in costumes or props.

  • Famous theater built recreated by the late American actor Sam Wanamaker in exact detail. This is the only true way to watch Shakespeare's plays as they were written and performed. Excellent museum and tour of the Globe.Stunning views of the river and At Paul's cathedral. Sited on Bankside next to the Rate Modern. Tube access from London Bridge or Embankment.

  • I've been here twice, a year ago to see "Hamlet" and just recently "Much Ado About Nothing". Both shows were fabulous and an interesting take on Shakespeare. Things to note when visiting the theatre: - Yard tickets are really cheap and a great day or evening out. Personally, I always buy seated tickets because I can't stand for that long. - If seated buy cushions, its really worth the £1 extra - A lot of the performances are modern takes on the original production. I've read a couple of bad reviews on here about this, personally I think its excellent. Go to the Globe and buy a seat, you wont regret it.
