Everything you need to know to plan your visit to Shakespeare’s Globe

Shakespeare’s Globe is located on the bank of the River Thames, London (UK), in the Bankside Cultural Quarter. Our address is 21 New Globe Walk, SE1 9DT.

Use the links below to plan your visit. Our main Covid-19 safety measures page has everything you need to know about visiting us at this time, including where and when to arrive for your performance or tour.



Open air

We are a roofless (open air) theatre – tours and events go ahead in all conditions so dress for the weather! Blanket and cushion hire is currently unavailable so if you are attending a performance, you are welcome to bring your own.

Covid-19 guidance

Different performances and tours may follow different formats and have specific guidance at this time. Before visiting us, please make sure you read any pre-visit emails we have sent you and our safety measures page: both the general guidance and the information specific to your event-type.


Once you have pre-booked your ticket for any on-site activity, we will communicate with you via email to prepare you for your visit. If there is a change in UK Government guidelines which requires us to cancel an event, we will contact you to offer you a credit voucher or refund.


Photography and video recording is not permitted during workshops, performances or screenings. Video recording is not permitted on a guided tour and photography may be restricted at certain times.


After the most challenging year in our charity’s history, we still need our supporters to help us recover.
