Watching Shakespeare performed as the Bard intended

 

Shakespeare’s Globe theatre recreates the conditions of the sixteenth century Globe Theatre built by Shakespeare’s company of players, just 230 metres from the original site. How’s that for authenticity? Today’s Globe is open to the elements, just as it was in Shakespeare’s day, so if you’ve got standing tickets (from £5) in the open-air Yard, there’s a chance you’ll watch The Tempest as the rain falls or A Midsummer Night’s Dream on a balmy summer evening. Covered seats are available in the Galleries. Take a tour of the theatre and visit the Exhibition to find out more about Shakespeare’s London too.
