Coronavirus (Covid-19) safety measures

Please read about the Covid-19 safety measures that are in place (note that in the event of a change in UK Government guidelines which requires us to cancel your tour, we will contact you to offer you a credit voucher or refund at no additional cost to you).


The tour includes steps and is conducted on foot – let us know during the booking process if anyone in your party has any physical access requirements. If you have any other access requirements (such as needing a Touch Tour or a BSL interpreter), please email us so we can discuss what we can put in place.



The full tour route around the Globe Theatre does include steps, but you are still welcome to bring a pram into the ground level of the auditorium. Baby changing facilities will be open and available as normal.
