Shakespeare's Globe Theatre has been recreated on the south bank of the River Thames in London. The theatre is only a short distance from the site of the original Globe Theatre built in 1599 here many of Shakespeare's plays were first produced.
The Shakespeare's Globe Theatre is an incredible recreation of the wood-and-thatch, open-roofed Globe Playhouse that premiered most of Shakespeare's greatest works. The original playhouse was built in but it burned.
