If you visit London, the Globe needs to be on your schedule. The tour was great, quite informative and engaging. And that is according to the 16 year old and nine year old. You get a great sense of the history and zeitgeist walking through the museum. It helped my whole family to appreciate the rest of our visit to London, as so much of what was happening at the Globe was commenting on the happenings of the day. Looking forward to actually seeing a production at the theater on our next visit.
Premier theatre location - featuring some of the Bards greatest and indeed original work if we are to believe the architect of this more recent re-construction of the Elizabethan theatre. Has an indoor and outdoor theatre. Has great atmosphere and well worth a visit even if you don't end up going to the theater. There is lots to see and bargains to be had if you can see the afternoon shows. Fabulous!
I had the most wonderful time here in the upper seated section. I have never actually watched a show here before and saw taming of the shrew. I would warn anyone who's tall that the front row of the seated section has very little leg room so be prepared to sit at an angle!
I was on August 2 for Hamlet's play. It was an incredibly sublime performance. I ended up very excited, with a lot of desire to applaud the actors. It is a beautiful theater, very well decorated and very elegant. It was my dream to be there and it was fulfilled. THANK YOU, YOU ARE FANTASTIC. The store was incredible, I wanted to take everything! Much love from Spain.
Even tho this building is only 20 years old or so, the construction was done in the same manner as was believed to be practiced in the old time. The building is really cool to see and I wish we could have caught one of their actual shows. By far the best part for me was our tour guide. I don't remember his name right now but his humor and passion for true theater really made this my favorite stop during our trip.
