Shakespeare’s Globe Story & Tour
Be transported back to Shakespeare’s London, discover the magic of stagecraft, and explore the iconic Globe Theatre itself as part of Shakespeare’s Globe Story & Tour.
In our brand-new, walk-through exhibition space, you’ll be immersed in the sights, sounds, and secrets of Shakespeare’s London, travelling through over 400 years of fascinating history. You’ll be able to relive some of our most iconic shows with seasonally curated displays, and even have the chance to get ready for the stage yourself with interactive costumes and props.
Venture into the Globe Theatre itself where our expert Guides bring to life the thrilling story of our iconic wooden ‘O’. Hear how the original 1599 theatre survived the plague, fire and political oppression and rose again in the 1990s as part of one man’s radical vision. Wonder at its craftsmanship and imagine how thousands of Londoners once packed in to see the greatest actors of the day.

Please note, subject to activity taking place on stage due to the nature of our working theatre, certain restrictions may apply on your Tour, including photography. Information will be available on the day or can be found by contacting Box Office.
