Expensive? Sure. Touristy? Yes. Still, a great venue to watch a play. . .usually performed by a higher caliber of actors you get for Billy Shakes plays here in the states. . .an almost must-experience if you're in London. . .

An interesting way of capturing what it was like to see a play when Shakespeare was writing. It was uncomfortable at times having to stand to watch the play, and others seemed to be uncomfortable as well. I would much rather prefer to watch a performance in a more comfortable chair than having to lean against other people in front of a stage. However, it was worth the visit to see the recreation of Shakespeare's Globe.

A very cool place. I'm not sure about the visitor's center/museum area, but just sitting and watching a play is well worth it. Fresh strawberries at the concession stand and a waterfront view; you can't beat it.

Sam Wanamaker did a wonderful job on his lifetime project to bring the Globe back into existence. Shame they built a totally inharmonious brick building which serves as the ticket hall and museum right next to it.
