Highlights
  • Relive the magnificence of the Shakespearan era and imagine Hamlet as it would have been originally performed
  • Learn about Elizabethan behind-the-scenes secrets like the special effects used to add blood and gore
  • Hit The Swan Bar & Restaurant for a refreshing drink or bite, overlooking the sublime views of the Thames and St. Paul's
Description

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” So said Shakespeare in As You Like It and with this tour you’ll get to see not just what Shakespeare’s stage was like, but his entire world! Seize this grand opportunity to relive the Shakespearean era; are you prepared for overwhelming fascination and inspiration.

The authentic Tudor exterior and thatch roof (the only one in London) are preludes to what awaits you inside: an exquisite and architecturally accurate recreation of Shakespeare’s original theatrical home.

Led by an expert guide, you’ll see in your ‘mind’s eye’ just how The Bard’s plays would have been performed and received. The stage jutting out into the audience, and the restless groundlings (literally, those who stood on the ground), getting a visceral experience (and alleged throwing oyster shells at characters they didn't like). You’ll sit in the tiered, wooden seating that housed the better-heeled members of society, and see how the audience enveloped the stage in a near circle.

Along with the guide’s colorful stories of the 1599 Globe, you’ll get a sense of the raucous atmosphere and how the comedies, tragedies and histories came alive for people from all walks of life.

In addition to this guided tour you'll get the exhibition audio guide. It's an hour of additional insights into Shakespeare’s life and world. And this year, the 400th anniversary of his birth, is a perfect time to get to know the Bard a little better.

The audio guide also includes some behind-the-scenes secrets of Elizabethan special effects - they loved blood and gore, and seeing characters fly on stage! You’ll see how they created the clothes used onstage. There are regular live demonstrations of sword-fighting and costume dressings.

And should you need an ale or two to slake your thirst there’s The Swan Bar & Restaurant. A more elegant affair than would have been available to Shakespeare’s customers, it has stunning views of the Thames and St. Paul’s, as well as an impressive food and drinks menu.

Insider tip

Shakespeare reportedly invented over 500 words, many of which are still in use today. Eternal proof that when in doubt, you should just make it up!

It was wonderful. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and engaging! I went on this tour because my cousin wanted to go but I had no real interest however the guide changed that and made it enjoyable for me
