Discover Shakespeare’s iconic open-air theatre, here in the heart of London.
Tours available daily across summer.
Take a Globe Theatre Guided Tour to hear the story of the original 1599 theatre, how the Globe battled to survive plague, fire and political oppression, and how one man’s vision saw it rise again after 400 years.

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.
