Mr. Selfish and I are all about the bargains and deals, especially when you’re in an expensive city like London. I’ve already gone over the 2 for 1 deals, as well as the free parks, museums, and markets available for lounging, learning, and browsing in London.
1. Shakespeare Globe Theatre – You can buy tickets to any show for 5 pounds. Mr. Selfish and I watched “Taming of the Shrew.” For a 5 pounds ticket, you have to stand in the Yard for the entire performance and are subject to the elements since it is uncovered. But hey, it’s 5 pounds. What other performance can you see for 5 pounds in London? Not much.
Aside from the standing and being subject to the elements, the view from the Yard is the best in the Globe. You can see everything clearly and the actors direct their voices toward you. Another plus is that you can bring in food and drinks (in plastic containers) to enjoy during the performance. It’s a bargain at 5 pounds!
