England - London, Shakespeare's Globe's Swan Restaurant

Shakespeare's Globe

We had an amazing high tea in this restaurant after the Globe tour.  After that we walked to the Barbican and saw David Tennant in Richard II.  (My reply was ... You saw David Tennant!  I am so jealous!)

Shakespeare's Globe is the complex housing a reconstruction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse in the London Borough of Southwark, on the south bank of the River Thames that was originally built in 1599, destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614, and then demolished in 1644.

The modern Globe Theatre reconstruction is considered quite realistic, though contemporary safety requirements mean that it accommodates only 1400 spectators compared to the original theatre’s 3000.
