Enjoyed the Tour at the globe. The guide for the tour was quite amusing and funny. Lovely place.

Went to England in 2000 for the first time just to see the Globe - what a fantastic experience! I have been back several times and sat through 3 plays one day last July. I recommend it to everyone who is in town for more than a day or two.


WE love our visit to the Globe. The guide was fantastic. We enjoy the guided tour and love the lay out theatre. Absolutelly fantastic.


Visiting the Globe is a highlight of any trip to the capital and I recommend the standing tickets to be at the heart of the action!
