Shakespeare Mural

Today, the Catswhiskers team transferred down to London from Glasgow by rail, arriving at our hotel, close to the south bank of the River Thames, about 5.00pm.

Our prime objective is to attend a performance tomorrow evening at the Globe Theatre which is a reconstruction of the original Globe Theatre associated with William Shakespeare which was built in 1599, destroyed by fire in 1613, rebuilt in 1614, and finally demolished in 1644.

The locale of the Globe Theatre, close to London Bridge, is very compact and offers excellent photo opportunities of important and historic sites as shown in this post.
