Shakespeare's Globe

Your safety at the Globe

  • 2017/Safety/Desktop

Shakespeares Globe is committed to the safety and security of all our visitors and staff.

We currently have enhanced security, with all bags being checked. Some entrances may be closed, so please follow signage. Please arrive in good time, do not bring any large bags and check the Calendar before your visit or call +44 (0)20 7902 1500 to find out about our latest opening times. For the latest travel updates please visit Transport for London.

We have a full security team on site 24 hours a day, working closely with the Metropolitan Police, to carry out various security measures. Globe staff partake in counter-terrorism training and have been reminded of their responsibilities to remain vigilant in light of the current threat level. As part of our ongoing liaison with the Metropolitan Police, there is also a heightened police presence around the site at the current time. 

Please note that our security procedures are kept under constant review and therefore the above information may change.
