Want to see what the legendary Globe Theater was like? Get rid of your bulky bags first! This post provides all the luggage storage options near Shakespeare’s Globe.
Where can you store bags in London?
Suppose your hotel or private holiday apartment doesn’t offer the opportunity to store bags before check-in or after check-out. What are you going to do with all your bulky stuff? It would be a pity to waste your free time in London.
If you decide to carry your suitcase around the city, it won’t be easy. London is a highly crowded and lively city. Also, most landmarks and main attractions, such as Shakespeare’s Globe, don’t allow bulky bags inside.
The capital’s most famous museums, theatres and galleries offer cloakrooms for storing coats and small bags. Some of them also have coin-operated lockers, but they aren’t suitable for large items and suitcases.
However, Shakespeare’s Globe cloakroom is currently closed. So, you’ll have to store oversized luggage offsite if you want to visit the theatre or attend an event. You can still take handbags but not larger than 40cm x 35cm x 19cm.
In order to avoid any kind of hassle, we recommend that you leave your luggage at one of the Radical Storage facilities located close to Shakespeare’s Globe.

Shakespeare’s globe theatre facts
Shakespeare’s Globe is a reproduction of the Globe Theatre, an Elizabethan theater in which William Shakespeare’s plays were performed.
Located in Southwark’s neighborhood, on the south bank of the Thames, it’s considered one of the most iconic theatres in London.

- Due to a fire on the Globe’s thatched roof (caused by a cannonball fired during a show), the entire theater and the sets were destroyed.
- The second theatre, with a tiled roof, was rebuilt in the same place in 1614. However, in 1642 it was closed and then demolished.
- It could hold up to 3200 people.
- People paid 1 penny (their value in the Elizabethan era) for a standing room (in the center of the theater and near the stage) and 2 pennies for a seat in one of the 3 circular halls.
- The current Shakespeare’s Globe holds 1500 people.
- A German play was the first to be performed at the reconstructed Globe (in 1993) while the theatre was still under construction.
