18. The Globe Theatre
The Globe Theatre was constructed in 1599 by the playing company of William Shakespeare. However, the building was destroyed in 1613 and another Globe Theatre was built in the same place in 1614. The second building also got closed in September 1642. The Globe Theatre we now get to see in London is actually a reconstruction of the legendary building and is called “Shakespeare’s Globe”. It was opened in 1997 around 230 metres away from the original theatre’s location.
