"The World's a Stage"
Shakespeare’s Globe is a reproduction of the original Globe Theatre, which burned down in 1613 after cannon shot set fire to its roof. The theater was built near the site of the original using nearly identical methods and materials. Since it opened in 1997, The New Globe has been a popular and iconic addition to London theatre, and has turned from hosting only open-air summer productions into a vibrant center of Shakespearean drama, education, exhibitions, and tours. The ‘groundling’ tradition is still alive at the Globe, whereby visitors can watch world-class theater from the yard for GBP5.

The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse forms a part of Shakespeare’s Globe, and stands beside the beautifully reconstructed Globe theater. This candle-lit, indoor theater is fashioned after the 17th-century playhouses where avid audiences would gather to witness the works of Shakespeare, John Webster and Ben Jonson come to life. Although the Jacobean design of the playhouse was greatly inspired by the historic Blackfriars Theatre, it is only loosely based on the original designs and instead embodies the distinct character of all the theaters that were built around that time. The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is not only a venue for theatrical productions and concerts, but also caters to the needs of the Globe's various educational programs. Visit the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse and experience the thrill of live theater in a historic setting that take you back in time.

Long ago, before the establishment of animal rights, Bear Gardens was home to the immensely popular Elizabethan sport of bear-baiting, where dogs were set upon chained bears and trained to kill them. Now the site is home (among warehouses and offices) to a red brick house which is part of the New Globe Theater. The brick house displays a lone, black, stuffed bear as a memorial to the street's sordid history.

As its name indicates, this bridge was built in inauguration of the third millennium of this hallowed city. The steel structure was designed by architects Foster & Partners and it is London's first new bridge since the 1960s. The Millennium Bridge is a 370-meter (1214 feet) long pedestrian walkway with easy access for the disabled - a scenic stroll along the teak decks between St. Paul's and the Tate Modern. Formed by a single sweeping arc, it is designed to appear as a thin ribbon of steel by day and, illuminated at night, as a shining blade of light across the river.

Monument to the Unknown Artist was built by Greyworld in 2007 and is located near the Tate Modern Museum. Initially it looks like an ordinary bronze sculpture of a man with a neck scarf, black suit and a paint brush in his hand. But it is a blend of animatronic and fine art where it mimics your actions if you happen to stand nearby. Standing six meters (19.69 feet) tall, this interactive piece of art is indeed a great way to pose and click pictures that will be truly memorable.

Located next to the London Millennium Bridge, the current Southwark Bridge was completed in 1921, making it the second Southwark Bridge to be built on this site. The first Southwark Bridge, constructed in 1819, suffered from low toll revenue due to its toll-free neighbors. The new bridge was designed to parallel both Blackfriars Bridge and London Bridge to help ease the flow of the city's traffic. Boats were once moored by Thames ferrymen near the steps where the south side of the bridge currently stands. The north end of the bridge lies nearby the Cannon Street tube station while the south end rests near the Clink Prison Museum.

A ward in London, Queenhithe is located by the Thames. The ward is connected via the route 388 by London Buses. The nearest Underground station connecting it is Mansion House. Queenhithe gets the name from a Roman dock known as "Queen's Dock" or "Queen's Quay". This dock's existence can be dated to the late 9th century. The Millennium footbridge connects the ward to the River Thames, and has eased the problems of daily commuters. The ward also has a lot of important offices and educational institutions.
