London’s Accessible Landmarks: Shakespeare’s Globe

Pop along to Bankside where the original theatre was built in 1599, but destroyed by fire in 1513. The modern building is based on the 16th century design.

The venue has its own car park with free parking for blue badge holders but they need to be booked in advance via the Access Information Line, 020 7902 1409.

There is ramp access to the building and a lift for public use. There is no hearing assistance system at the reception, but there is inside the theatre and it is on a fixed loop. Motorised scooters are allowed in public parts of the venue.

There are designated spaces for wheelchair users in the yard and the middle gallery of the theatre. The theatre does not provide audio described performances. There are wheelchairs that can be borrowed and assistance dogs are allowed in the auditorium. There are accessible toilets here.

Storyteller-guides offer tours of the theatre all year round and performances take place from late April to early October. Watch sword-fighting, discover the secrets behind hand-made costumes and experience Shakespeare’s London for yourself.
