Pride Guided Tour

Step inside our iconic wooden ‘O’ for a Pride Guided Tour of the Globe Theatre, bringing to life the queer stories and characters from Shakespeare’s life and works.

What would life have been like for the queer community during Shakespeare’s lifetime? And how exactly are they linked to the theatre?

Take a deep dive into an important era in LGBTQ+ history, from rebellious icons down in the yard to nobility in the galleries, and even the intimate letters between King James I and his ‘favourite’ the Duke of Buckingham.

Discover vivid records of diverse sexualities and gender identities in the writing of the time, including Shakespeare’s own Sonnets, and explore the queer relationships between characters in some of his most famous plays.

This unique tour is packed with fascinating people, both real and fictional, and their unexpected stories.
