About Globe Theatre Tour & Exhibition
Open all year round, the Globe Theatre Tour & Exhibition gives you an opportunity to learn more about this unique building and its most famous playwright, Shakespeare.
Our expert guides will take you on a fascinating tour of the iconic Globe Theatre, bringing the space to life with colourful stories of the 1599 Globe, of the reconstruction process in the 1990s, and of how the ‘wooden O’ works today as an imaginative and experimental theatrical space. Based under the Globe Theatre, our engaging and informative Exhibition explores the life of Shakespeare, the London where he lived, and the theatre for which he wrote.
Tours are in English. Complimentary information sheets are currently available in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Japanese. It will last approximately 40 minutes.

Phoebus Cart’s Tempest: The Cycle of Initiation
Phoebus Cart’s production of The Tempest in 1991 was a radical experiment to present an immersive performance experience – for both the audience and the actors. It was an open-air promenade performance that took place in three unique arenas across England, including the building site of the reconstructed Globe Theatre. This display consists of loans from the personal archives and collections of Mark Rylance and Jenny Tiramani, shown alongside exhibits from the Globe Archives. Included in admission to the Globe Exhibition.
Visiting as a Group or School
Create an unforgettable experience by combining your visit to the Globe Theatre Tour & Exhibition with one of many attractions along Bankside, plus live demonstrations of Elizabethan practices, and refreshments, to make a fun-filled half day or full day out.
