The Guest Information packet in the apartment contains directions and information on our favorite activities and dining spots from the Globe Theatre just down the road (an actual model of the Globe in London) where you can see Shakespeare's plays performed to a board-game restaurant where you can play your favorite games from Settlers of Catan to Clue while having a meal or a pint (or both!)
