Visit Shakespeare’s Globe for a season of love and life, and discover the joys of the beautiful wooden ‘O’ on the south bank of the River Thames. Enjoy a safe visit with reduced capacities and approved Covid procedures. The Globe has everything you need to make this an unforgettable summer. Whether you are looking for a delicious afternoon tea by the water; a family guided tour to uncover the secrets of the incredible building, or to watch a performance under the stars.

Celebrate all that unites us – stories, laughter, tears and nature and get up close with live performances of our most famous poet’s plays once again.

In the open-air theatre space, they have productions to suit everyone’s taste. Join the fiesta at A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a colourful and ‘utterly joyous’ (Time Out) show. Experience a fiery version of Twelfth Night, infused with the nostalgia and soulful music of the world of Americana. There’s a fresh production of the ill-fated Romeo & Juliet, featuring Alfred Enoch (Harry Potter). Enjoy As You Like It or The Tempest, both performed by the Globe’s multi-talented touring company. Or try Metamorphoses, a piece inspired by Ovid’s myths, written for the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
