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.


During your visit, it’s possible that the Globe Tour will visit multiple floors within the theatre. These levels are accessed by four or eight flights of stairs, using our external stairway tower.

We are able to offer limited level access to seats in the Middle and Upper galleries. For more information, please contact email or call us on 0207 4019919.



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.
