Published: Thursday 26th of June 2008

Fans of classic literature and the theatre - who may also be London city pass holders - should take the opportunity of a trip to London and explore the famous Globe Theatre.

Originally constructed in 1599 and later destroyed in 1613, the latest incarnation of this most famous of theatres was opened to the public in 1997.

And it is now possible to, not only to embrace the theatre as part of a show, but to also take part in an exhibition and tour of the London theatre.

"Shakespeare's Globe Exhibition explores the life of Shakespeare, the London where he lived, and the theatre for which he wrote," said the Globe.

"A fascinating guided tour then takes you into the unique space."

Fresh tours start at least every 30 minutes and there is no need for anyone to book in advance.

London Pass holders can receive free entry to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre Tour & Exhibition.
