Ambulant Disabled and Wheelchair Users
There are 28 steps to the Middle Gallery and 50 steps to the Upper  Gallery. Gentleman's Room P is lift accessible and can accommodate up to three wheelchairs and three companions. One wheelchair ramp that slightly elevates user is available in the yard. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate you if you book an unsuitable seat or do not notify us at the time of booking.

Hearing Aids
A hearing aid induction loop is available at all performances; please switch aids to ‘T’ position. Please note that the Globe is an open-air theatre and the loop will amplify all sounds. The hearing loop works best when seated in the lower gallery. If a hearing aid proves incompatible with our system please inform the Duty House Manager. This applies to a small number of digital aids, for which reason, we have a limited number of supplementary headsets available. Unfortunately we cannot provide hearing aids.

Enabling dogs
Hearing and guide dogs are welcome at all performances and can either accompany their owner into the theatre, or be looked after by staff. Please note performances can involve loud noises.
