Sam Wanamaker Playhouse Tours

Opened in 2014, and named after the Globe’s founder, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse explores the experiences of actors and audiences in indoor playhouses in contrast to the more expansive, public spaces of the open-air theatres like the Globe. Discover the impact on Shakespeare’s writing in his late plays and more on this unique tour.

Tours are in English and last approximately 40 minutes. Tickets for this experience do not include entry to the Globe Theatre.
