Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre has become one of the most talked about and visited tourist sites in London since the re-creation of Shakespeare’s theatre at the end of the 20th century. One of several London arenas that Shakespeare’s plays were performed in during his lifetime, Shakespeare’s Globe was the best known and loved of all.
The Globe Theatre is a thriving arts centre, while housing the biggest Shakespeare exhibition anywhere, charting both the history of the writing genius, his family, players and his celebrated theatres.
Of course, the focus of the displays is on Shakespeare’s theatre royal, the Globe Theatre, charting the history of the venerable edifice from its original construction in 1599 to its demise by fire in 1613. Even so, during its heyday at the height of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, Shakespeare’s Globe won international renown as the premier crucible of the arts.
