London 116 – Shakespeare’s Globe

Shakespeare’s Globe is the complex housing a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse in the London Borough of Southwark, on the south bank of the River Thames where Shakespeare worked and wrote many of his greatest plays. The Globe Theatre that was originally built in 1599, destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614, and then demolished in 1644. Then in 1970, an American actor and director Sam Wanamaker had a vision to recreate the Shakespeare’s Globe close to its original location at Bankside, Southwar, which only completed in 1997.
Our 3-day London Pass covered the £13.50 ticket price of the tour and we got a very detailed walk-around this Oak-and-thatch replica of the Globe Theatre in a small group. It felt very medieval to be inside of the Globe although it was just empty stage and empty seats. I hope one day I could watch a play inside the Globe…
