Built on the banks of the Thames, Shakespeare’s Globe is a fascinating place to watch genuine, top-quality performances of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.
The wooden, circular, open-air playhouse is a reconstruction of the original one, which burned down in 1613. The actors, staging and costumes are magnificent. The season runs from April/May to October each year, but the Globe Exhibition (museum) is open all year round.
Much Ado About Nothing (one of “Bill’s” finest comedies) was brilliant!
