Live Jazz at the Crypt

"The music is by serious musicians who love playing, all live, and a fun atmosphere. It's a very intimate venue, so get in early to get good seats. A bit amazing how much they fitted in though; a tiny bar, proper dining (they have a kitchen somewhere about), all inside the church's old-school place for dead people. Cosy."

The Globe Theatre:

The Globe dates back to 1599 and many of Shakespeare’s plays premiered there. It’s been reconstructed pretty much to its identical original form and now presents many of Shakespeare’s plays and other classical works. It’s a pretty incredible experience, especially on a summer evening (there’s no roof). If you’re wondering if this has “to be or not to be” expensive – it doesn’t! (that’s a Hamlet joke by the way...) Standing tickets are only £5 and they are, in my opinion, the best place to be as you’re right at the front and in the action (practically in the show!), and seated tickets are pretty cheap as well. The Globe is also in a beautiful spot, next to river. Pop into the Tate next door (free!) for contemporary art and stroll along the pedestrianised Southbank. Highly recommend this historical, awe-inspiring experience!'
