This review is for the guided tour. Since discovering this unexpected treasure, I've recommended it to everyone I know who is going to London. Inexpensive entrance fee, fabulous building built to resemble the original, if you're lucky you'll see them rehearsing!

Well worth a visit. The reconstruction of the globe is fantastic, it really gives you a feel for how it would have been. Guided tour of the globe theatre is a must. A good exhibition as well.

Very enjoyable and educational. The exhibition was interesting and the "listening booths" we're great. The guide was very knowledgable and funny. The tour was definitely worth it, my sons 11 and 13 enjoyed it. We also listened to a very good talk about the costumes....More

The guide we had knew everything about this theater he was very informative. It was a small group and that was perfect for us. We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it.

I loved the visit to this place. A tour here is like travelling on time. It was so great as well to see people performing life during the visit (although it was harder for the tourguide as he had to stop from time to time)....More

Lead h a very amusing actor this was well worth the fee. Stand in the groundlings area, sit in the posh seats - get a real feel for how it must have been, great exhibition too. Would love to go back and see a performance.

First off, spend the extra quid and get a cushion if you're paying for a seat; wooden benches get hard after a while. Honestly, I don't know that there is a bad seat in the house. The venue is well organized. Make sure, though, if...More

I went to the Sam Wanamaker theatre in The Globe to see 'Pericles'. This theatre is candlelit. The performance was brilliant, moving and the cast lived the Shakespearean language. It was a highlight of my visit to London.

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
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
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

There are places to store luggage in all terminals at Heathrow Airport. They are located in the excess baggage areas and you pay per piece of luggage. You can look this up and see the cost per time left at the excess baggage... More

I purchased groundling (yard) tickets for a show this June. How early would you recommend arriving in order to get a good spot in the yard?

One hour ahead would be good and enough, I think. Normally people start queueing outside a while before you are allowed in.

The restaurant connected to the theatre is terrific and not overly priced. Essential to book however.
