Shakespeare Walks

This event has now passed.
Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult but responsible decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours.

As you can imagine, this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and well-being of both the public, staff and volunteers.

We hope to open the doors to our wooden O as soon as possible – but in this unprecedented time for theatre, and as a charity that receives no annual government subsidy, we are in desperate need of donations to help us to continue to strive in the future.

We ask at this time of huge risk to our beloved theatre that you donate if you can. Any amount, large or small, will be hugely appreciated.

With love, solidarity and thanks to you all from the whole Globe family.

If   when we meet again, why, we shall smile


Take a three-hour walk, celebrating Shakespeare’s birthday, brought alive by 30 actors.

Conceived by Mark Rylance, who will be part of the company, Sweet Love Remember’d has taken place for over 25 years. Along the way, you will visit places that Shakespeare knew and encounter scenes, speeches and sonnets in streets and parks.

Choose between a Walk starting from the parish of Shoreditch, where the original theatre was built in 1576, or from Westminster, the seat of power. Both walks end at Shakespeare’s Globe.
