Experience Shakespeare’s Globe, a world-renowned theatre and cultural landmark in London’s once-notorious Bankside entertainment district.

Shakespeare's Globe is a faithful recreation of William Shakespeare’s iconic Globe Theatre, which was established on a nearby site in 1599. Stepping inside Shakespeare's Globe feels like travelling back in time to the Elizabethan playhouse. Expert guides bring the extraordinary open-air theatre to life on a guided tour, with colourful stories of the original theatre.

Swan at The Globe, the theatre's on-site pub, offers an enchanting traditional afternoon tea, with a Shakespearean twist inspired by Shakespeare’s plays such as A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo & Juliet. To this day, Shakespeare's Globe still hosts live performances of The Bard's work, in the setting he intended it to be viewed.

Currently, spectacular performances of A Midsummer Night's Dream, As You Like It, The Tempest and Romeo & Juliet are scheduled to be performed in this breath-taking theatrical space, and you could win tickets to view one of them!

We've joined forces with Shakespeare’s Globe to give you the opportunity to win tickets for a guided tour, Shakespearean afternoon tea, plus a matinee performance; you'll also receive River Roamer tickets so you can sail to and from the theatre which is located next to Bankside Pier, an experience you’ll be raving about for a long time to come!
