A tour of The Globe

A couple of years ago on a hot summer night my friends and I went to a play at The Globe, standing in the Yard, an experience that is for sure!

This visit we did a tour, which I thoroughly enjoyed, hearing all about the history of The Globe and theatres that had been on this site for hundreds of years. The original theatre having burnt down and the area being used to house road machines in the 1970s. This restriction was lead by Sam Wanamaker and it opened in 1997.
The best tickets in the house all those years ago when the plays were fresh were10p, now the cheapest are £5 – standing in the yard.
I really loved this tour it was fascinating.
