Shakespeare's Globe

Your Visit

Located on the bank of the River Thames in Bankside's Cultural Quarter, Shakespeare's Globe welcomes thousands of visitors to experience world renowned productions of Shakespeare every day.

Shakespeare's 400th Anniversary Weekend

On Saturday 23 April Shakespeare's Globe will be closed until approximately 10.30am. This is due to a private event taking place at The Globe. There will be general road closures surrounding Shakespeare's Globe from 8.00am until approximately 11.00am.

On Sunday 24 April, London will be a lot busier than usual due to the London Marathon taking place, especially around the London Bridge and Tower Bridge areas. If you are attending The Complete Walk, we advise visiting the London Marathon website for more information on the Marathon route.

London Underground, London Overground and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) all lay on extra services on Race Day. For travel updates and to plan your journey, visit the TfL website.
