This is a faithful replica of Shakespeare’s Globe that once stood in this area by the Thames, and with its courtyard open to the elements, this is simply a remarkable place to see Shakespeare. It’s not just a heritage experience, but also a theatrical conceit that lends itself perfectly to productions of Shakespeare. Best yet, “groundlings” tickets cost only £5 (though you will have to stand). This act sounds like it could be painful, but it actually adds to the experience, as groundlings stand in the pit closest to the action and feel remarkably involved.
