What to know before you get here

We’re located right by the River Thames, and easily accessed by many types of transport. Start your day with a lovely riverside walk along some of London’s most popular footpaths and see if you can spot some of the famous buildings on the skyline.

Get here early

Why not start the day right with breakfast right here at the Globe? A treat like this is hard to resist and there’s plenty of space to relax before the bustle of the day begins.

Our friends at the Swan Bar & Restaurant have three spaces on site where you can take a break throughout the day, whether you’re looking for light snacks in our Foyer Café or something more substantial in our restaurant.

Take a tour

During half term we run family tours of the Globe Theatre created with young people specially in mind. Explore Shakespeare’s London and discover the theatrical world he created, with plenty of fun facts and stories to bring history to life before your very eyes.

The tours run every day at 9.00am – book in advance to make sure you don’t miss out!

Expand your knowledge of Shakespeare

If the Globe Theatre Family Tour gives you a taste for everyone’s favourite playwright, why not join us for one of our storytelling sessions on As You Like It or A Midsummer Night’s Dream this February? Our resident storytellers take on some of Shakespeare’s most famous plays in these hour long sessions.

This half term we have a whole host of events for you to explore. Why not join us for one of our workshops or author events? Whether you’re interested in nature, art, or using your imagination, we have something for everyone.

Explore our Relaxed Discovery Morning

On Friday 21 February, we’ll be opening the Globe Theatre at 8.30am for a Relaxed Discovery Morning so that you can have the opportunity to visit in a calmer environment before we open to the general public. Our talented tour guides will be available to talk you through the history of the space and answer any of your questions as you explore.

Treat thyself to something from our shop

Looking for a Shakespeare-shaped bath duck to add to your collection, or perhaps an adorable plague rat plush toy to delight and disgust your friends? Our shop has treats fit for a king and plenty of souvenirs to bring back memories of your visit to the Globe.
