Opened in 1997, the new Globe is a replica of the old Shakespeare theatre: oak poles, Norfolk canes, chalk with goat hair, lime and sand. That's how Sam Wanamaker wanted it: the American actor and director, since 1949, began a long campaign for the reconstruction of the Shakespearean theater.

Everyday is a special day at Kensington Roof Gardens

Whether you want to relax, have a meal, go clubbing or watch a movie, Kensington Roof Gardens is the place to be. The Roof Gardens are one of The Rooftop Film Club, so you can explore the beautiful gardens, enjoy the bar service, take a seat in one of the many gardens, enjoy the BBQ and welcome drink, and relax with the wild Flamingos before entering the cinema.

Remember to keep your eyes on the film and not on the Instagram-friendly 360° view over of London at the Peckham outpost of the Rooftop Film Club. The Bar is open from 5pm Tues-Sun, serving drinks until 11pm. The Box Office is open an hour before your film starts, so get there early for drinks and food whilst the sun sets over London!
