Hear the story of the original 1599 theatre, see our special photography exhibition, sneak a peek at some of our costumes and even stand on one of the most famous stages in the world.

Learn how the Globe battled to survive plague, fire and political oppression, and how one man’s vision saw it rise again after 400 years. Wonder at the craftsmanship and stand where thousands of Londoners would once have packed in to see the greatest actors of the day.
