Globe Theatre Guided Tour


Discover the stories and secrets of Shakespeare’s iconic open-air theatre, right in the heart of London. Tours available daily throughout winter.

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.

Wonder at the craftsmanship and imagine how thousands of Londoners would once have packed in to see the greatest actors of the day.

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!
