The Globe, which opened in 1997, is a reconstruction of an open-air theatre designed in 1599. The season normally runs from May to October and sometimes over the Christmas period. Tours of the theatre and an exhibition is also available.

The Shakespeare's Globe is also home to a second theatre - it has named its new 340 seat Indoor Jacobean Theatre The Sam Wanamaker Theatre, named after the organisation's founder, American actor and director Sam Wanamaker. Performances have been held inside the theatre since January 2014, and allow Shakespeare's Globe to present plays throughout the year. The theatre has two tiers of galleried seating and a pit seating area and is predominantly lit by candles.
