The current Globe is so close to the river that you can see it from our party boats, however it is about 230m from where the original Globe stood. This is because the Thames was so much wider in the 1600s when London was less developed and although the original Globe was on the river's edge, that position is far from the river now.
“Would definitely recommend - CPBS were by far and away the most helpful and friendly when we were making initial enquiries and couldn't have been more helpful or enthusiastic. We self catered which suited us well, and we had the best afternoon. Brilliant!”Alison, Golden Star, 9th August
“I had a great experience with CPB both during the organisation process and on the night itself. All the staff were really helpful with all my requests,however small they may have been. It was a really enjoyable experience and I'd definitely book with them again!”Alexandra, Golden Sunrise, 3rd December, through Trip Advisor
“I wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for making our trip on Wednesday so wonderful! Please extend our thanks and sincere appreciation to the team, they were so efficient and friendly. I am hoping to continue with this booking every year! ”Sital, Golden Star, 15th July
