Fascinating fact!

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!”
