Old Globe
This already famous theatre in London had its origin in 1599 and became prominent as “Shakespeare’s theatre.” Today’s Old Globe is essentially a replica of the original and was built only some 750 feet or so from the original location, in 1997.

Oxford Library
The Oxford Library comprises a collection of libraries, the Bodleian Library foremost among them, and dates back to the 16th century C.E. with roots dating to the 14th century C.E. A beautiful and most functional place. On entering, one must make a pledge before being received into this stately place.
