Original Globe Theatre Site | Tourope

Before we visit Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, we will visit the previous foundation of the theatre. This is the original site of the Globe Theatre in London that was built in 1599 on the Southbank of the River Thames in Southwark in close proximity to the Bear Garden. The land had once been owned by the Bishop of Winchester and this estate was called the Liberty of the Clink.
