The "Globe" theatre is usually associated with one of the other three theatres in London.
The original Globe Theatre was built in 1599 by the playing company, Lord Chamberlain's Men, to which Shakespeare belonged, and was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1613.
The theatre was rebuilt by June 1614 (Shakespeare had already moved from London to Stratford) and was officially closed in 1642.
Modern building, which was reconstituted according to the drawings and descriptions of the first Globe revealed during the excavations of the remains of the foundation) opened in 1997. The building was duplicated at about 200 meters from the original location.
Address: 21 New Globe Walk, London

Good, not the original, but interesting

Was cool to see the environment in which Shakespeare told his stories, but it's not the original and for me personally, wasn't a must-see in London. I'm glad I went, but it's not something I would go... read full review
Very atmospheric

I saw Othello here, recently, and the staging was wonderful. There were also surtitles high up on either side of the stage. It is definitely worth a visit. Wrap up warm, though! read full review

    I wish I went there during the summer to watch a play! The facts we were given is amazing! So worth the visit! :)

    The first commercial application for oxygen was restricted to the theatre - to the "laterna magica", which was used in popular shows at the time - the lighting in theatres and concert halls.

    Delightful theatre and considering the upkeep of such a wonderful place, a unique experience to celebrate the wonderful world of Shakespeare.

    For dinner after a play (or before outside in the sun), go to Tas Pide just to the right of the box office on New Globe Walk. Excellent Turkish cuisine, open late and not expensive!

    6 July: Become a groundling. It is a truly magical way to watch a play, beneath the open sky. Those who survive are always proud of their achievement.
