Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, London: 82 reviews and 140 photos

 
 

Built in 1599 by Cuthbert Burbage in Southwark, a district of London, the Globe Theatre became the location where many of Shakespeare's most renowned plays were first performed. In 1613, three years before the Bard's death, the firing of a canon during a production of Henry VIII set the dry thatched roof of the theatre on fire, completely destroying the original building.

In recent years The Globe has been beautifully restored to its former glory.

Shakespeare?s Globe is being developed for the enjoyment and exploration of Shakespeare and his contemporaries in performance. It is a world-class facility on the south bank of the River Thames, opposite St. Paul?s Cathedral, in London.
