Leonard Fahrni

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.

Vicky

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!
