The Tempest sweeps into London

There will always be chances to watch a Shakespeare play in London, but few could be better than those taking place at the Globe Theatre, the scene of so many productions of the bard's plays in his own lifetime.

Now restored to its original 17th century glory, the venue will be staging a season of The Tempest from April 23rd to August 13th.

People staying in London hotels can enjoy a dramatic tale of revenge and the supernatural, surrounding the ousted Prospero, the Duke of Milan.

Having been pushed out by his brother, he finds himself on an enchanted island along with deformed slave Caliban, spirit being Ariel and his daughter Miranda. There, he uses the power of the island to generate a storm that he sends to sweep away his brother and his ill-gotten gains.

The showing times are varied, with some at 13:00 BST, 14:00 BST, 18:30 BST, 19:30 BST and a one-off showing a minute to midnight on August 9th.

People enjoying stays in London hotels can not only select from a range of dates and times, but also have a wide selection of ticketing options.

Standing passes for the yard cost just £5, while the three seated galleries offer seated accommodation for prices ranging from £15 to £39.

Whatever people choose as their options, they can enjoy the most historically authentic and atmospheric of settings to enjoy the play in.

Getting to the Globe is also a simple task, with the theatre standing on the South Bank of the Thames.

Visitors catching the Tube can use the Circle or District lines to get to Blackfriars or Mansion House stations, followed by a walk over the Millennium Bridge to the venue.

Undertaken on a nice day, this could make for a very pleasant journey that matches the ultra-modern with the historic.
