London attractions: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

Published: Saturday 4th of August 2012

Visitors looking for cultural things to do in London will be sure to find it at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

It has been a great year for William Shakespeare, the greatest playwright the world has ever known.

First we had the epic festival and then the BBC triumphed with modern day interpretations of the Bard's works.

Special events coming up at the beguiling theatre include midnight matinees, turning the traditional afternoon showing on its head.

This season sees Henry V, The Taming of the Shrew and As You Like It wowing audiences into the wee small hours of the morning. There simply is no experience like it.

Visitors will be interested to learn that the Globe is a reconstruction of the original theatre, which was first built in 1599. It exudes Elizabethan London in every shape and form.

The theatre was founded by the American actor and director Sam Wanamaker, who spent a considerable amount of his life making this epic theatre a reality.
