Shakespeare's Globe

Recommended
The centre's brief is to encourage the study and dramatic interpretation of Shakespeare's work. The Globe Theatre or Wooden O has been rebuilt on the model of the original theatre founded by Cuthbert Burbage and demolished in 1644. Shows are put on in the afternoon as in the times of Shakespeare without artificial lighting or protection against the elements. The Inigo Jones Theatre is the setting for private concerts, poetry readings and studio productions.
