The Globe Theatre, London

The Globe Theatre is a reconstruction of the open air playhouse originally designed in 1599. Shakespeare wrote most of his plays for this theatre and acted on stage too.

There is an exhibition and tour to illustrate what life was like in London during Elizabethan times. Visitors can see the type of costumes that were worn, the instruments and music used on stage and the special effects that were used. The complex construction of The Globe in 1993 is also recorded using visual panels, commentaries and artefacts.

From April to October the Globe Theatre comes to life with a variety of Shakespeare's plays. For full details of the schedule see the Globes website or call for more information.
