Any lover of poetry worth their salt would want to be seen in Shakespeare's Globe theatre, which provides guests with plenty of fun things to do in London.
First built in 1599, the Globe stands as an important symbol of British cultural heritage.
In fact, if you're heading down to the theatre this June, be sure to check out a film called Henry V, from a play written by William Shakespeare which will be screened across the UK, including in London.
Open all year round, the Globe gives guests the chance to explore the life of one of the UK's most famous poets and take an in-depth look at his work.
One of the most interesting exhibitions currently on is called 'To Tell My Story, which gives a greater insight into the lives of many of the black and Asian actors that played a major role in shaping our understanding of Shakespeare's plays.
The attraction also includes a tour of the theatre which is available in several different languages.
