Shakespeare’s Globe Exhibition and Tour

KidRated’s Shakespeare’s Globe Top Tips:

  • Also check out the Golden Hinde for a truly Tudor day out
  • The Tate Modern is right next door
  • In the summer watch a play – standing tickets are only a fiver

Discover the enthralling world of the great playwright himself through Shakespeare’s Globe’s Exhibition and Tour.

 

The Exhibition explores Shakespeare’s life in London of the 16th-17th century. Through fascinating recreations of the taverns and bawdy-houses in the Globe, which was in the heart of London’s entertainment district at the time, the exhibition gives you a sense of what it would have been like to attend the Globe during Shakespearean times.

 

Tours of the Globe take place every half an hour. They give a true taste of life in 1599 with vivid, lively stories. Additionally, the Globe’s reconstruction during the 1990s is explained to visitors to help them understand the Globe’s transformation into the popular entertainment venue it still is today. This incredible introduction to Shakespeare’s world is sure to have even the most avid screen-lovers shifting their attention towards the theatre, even if just for the day!

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • If you want to get your kids interested in seeing a play here bring them to the Exhibition and Tour. It’s very hard to imagine what it’s like inside the theatre so let the kids see for themselves.
  • You’ll need about half an hour to see the Exhibition so book your Tour when you arrive so you’re not waiting with excitable children.
  • Encourage the kids to ask questions as the Guides are very knowledgeable.
  • The tour is pretty funny as you’ll hear about all the things that are not factually accurate in Hollywood movies. And as kids love facts they’ll remember these bits to tell their friends.
