My partner & I had a guided tour of the Globe Theatre which was built 21 years ago, the only thatched roof in the city of London. The guide was young, but definitely knew her stuff, she made it fun and linked past history to...More

No need to take a blanket or cushion - rent one. Cheap, a couple of GBP. You will need a cushion... We went on Saturday night 22/9/18, and it was cold, cold, cold. It also rained all night but you only get wet if you're...More

Nice remodel of original Globe. Informative tour that takes about an hour. It has copies of period dress and additional items to view.

Just seen Othello. Staff 10/10 , friendly and very interactive. Actors ( think all am/dram ) excellent. If not for London noise it was 16th century. Globe 10/10

We were in the shade but at 32c outside the heat was unbearable. Along with a lot of others I left in the interval. Otherwise good views, most actors could be heard and the seats were OK with a cushion

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some

browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

If it rains, people on the floor (standing) get wet, and people in the benches won’t cuz they are under roof.
