Family Globe Theatre Guided Tour

Join our Family Globe Theatre Guided Tour, ideal for those with children aged 7-11 years old. Our tour introduces younger visitors to Shakespeare’s London and to the theatrical world he created.

Who went to the theatre in Shakespeare’s England? What was a penny groundling? What was the smell like at the Globe? Step into the Globe Theatre here at Shakespeare’s Globe and learn about Elizabethan theatre and stage practices.

From blood and gore to poetry and prose, this Family Globe Theatre Guided Tour will delight and disgust.

Every tour is led by one of our expert tour guides, in English, and is suitable for all ages. Information sheets are available in a number of languages.

We are an open-air theatre and tours go ahead in all conditions so dress for the weather!
