Even without being familiar with English writer, you have heard about Shakspeare. On the southwark bank of the Thames, the Globe theatre has been build similar to what was the original theatre built in 1599 by Shakespeare's playing company, the Lord Chamberlain's Men. This first place was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1613. A second one was built on the same site by June 1614 and closed in 1642. It was only in 1997 that a modern reconstruction of the Globe was made.
The place is famous for the Shakespeare plays performed here in summer but there is also an exhibition which explores the life of Shakespeare, the London where he lived, and the theatre for which he wrote. Imagine the Globe as it would have been: the centre of what was once London's most notorious entertainment district, surrounded by raucous taverns and bawdy-houses.
