The Globe Theatre (Shakespeare's Globe)

4 saves

Recommendation by Louise Mayer

The best bargain in London! I go to virtually every performance there and spend only £5 to be a groundling. This means I stand in the yard of this beautiful reconstructed Elizabethan theatre. It is a fantastic experience whether you watch Shakespeare or non Shakespeare, the latter often less crowded. Hats off to Sam Wanamaker whose original idea it was. If you are not sure if you can stand for three hours, give it a try anyway. You can always leave at the interval! I bet you won’t leave! I am 65 and find it fine ....

Plenty of food available both at the venue and close by . The Swan restaurant which is on site does a bit pricey but lovely food and views over the Thames to St Pauls
