Shakespeare's Globe tickets

Seating Plan

Globe Theatre seating
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre was built as a replica to the pre-existing Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse built in 1599 by the playing company to which William Shakespeare belonged. True to its era, the Globe was an outdoor, ‘O’ shaped theatre, built with a timber frame and a thatched roof. The original seating was three tiers of roofed galleries and a “pit” for lower paying audience members. In respect of its historical counterpart, the rebuild of the Globe in 1997 was as authentic as was possible some 350 years after its destruction, meaning that the theatre still comes complete with its defining original features. Shakespeare’s Globe is more of an amphitheatre as opposed to what audiences would now consider to be a traditional theatre space. The buildings curvature means that audience members can have vastly different views depending on where they sit. There are three tiers of seating and each seat is a backless bench – so sitting is not always the most comfortable experiences; however cushions can be hired for £1. Other seating issues to be aware of are the number of pillars creating visual obstructions in the theatre; this is due to the building's Jacobean wooden frame. Whilst these features can seem off-putting, they are all part of the historical replica of the theatre. However it is still worth checking the theatre’s seating plan before you book tickets.

£5 Standing:For each production, 700 standing tickets are released, which means that audiences can see shows from the eyes of the 17th century working class in the famous pit area. Audience members will have to look up at the stage throughout the show. The benefits of these tickets are that audience members can spend much less than those who are seated but still see the same high quality show. None available None available
