A Night to Remember at the Globe Theatre or Royal Opera House

Theatre in London is renowned by all accounts. Globe Theatre is one of Bankside’s most iconic buildings and is where some of Shakespeare’s plays were first staged. The site, which was burned to the ground in 1613, was re-built almost 400 years later, using building techniques and materials as close to the original. The site is also called Shakespeare’s Globe and sells tickets to plays as well as holds tours of the building. If you don’t enjoy theatre, how about Opera? A night at the Royal Opera in London will be an unforgettable experience for music and drama lovers. Expect to put on your finest tuxedo or gown, enjoy a pre-theatre cocktail, a great show and a post-theatre dinner. The Royal Opera House is magnificently furnished with antiques and elegance and a must visit for all travelling to London.

        I was a student when residing in London. I have now moved to India. I loved the Covent Garden area and feel all travelers must visit the area for a coffee or dining or simply just shopping. I simply loved the River Thames Walk and often spent hours sitting at the Bankside cafes.
