The Globe stands a few hundred yards from its original site. The rebuilding of the iconic building stems from the founding of the Shakespeare's Globe Trust by the pioneering American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. The links above give information on Shakespeare and the London in which he lived and wrote in, the original Globe theatres and the remarkable story of Sam and the rebuilding process.
