Discover the plays of the Bard of Avon the way they were meant to be seen, at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. an authentic reproduction of the open-air theater once established by the playwright's playing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men. The modern playhouse sits roughly 230 m (750 ft) from the site of the original. Between performances, take a guided tour of the theater, and browse exhibitions highlighting Shakespeare and theater in the 16th and 17th centuries. If watching a play while exposed to the elements doesn't appeal, the adjoining Jacobean theater recreates the style of indoor playhouse for which Shakespeare also wrote.
