Days 82 & 83

Day 82 & 83 London
Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September

The highlight of the last couple of days of the trip was our night at The Globe where we saw Henry IV. Put a night at The Globe as a must see on your list! As usual we were a little late in purchasing our tickes and could only get standing room. Standing ended up being the best seats in the house as you are right in the thick of it in front of the stage.

The middle section of The Globe is in the open air and you get a taste of what theatre must have been like in Shakespeare's time. There is so much more audience interection and fun than I had thought - at times the Henry IV was quite bawdy indeed!! This is the ONLY way to see Shakespeare where you are buffeted by actors and mintrels running past, where the cast are obviously Shakespeare specialists and where you can experience the electric (pardon the pun)atmosphere of The Globe.
