Shakespeare's Globe Theatre - not the original, but near the foundations (200m away). The first Globe was destroyed by fire in 1613. A replacement was built, but later closed (along with all theatres) in 1642 during the English Civil War. It was considered "not seemly to indulge in any kind of diversions or amusements during such troublous times." England became a republic, but it didn't take. The monarchy (& theatres) returned during the "Restoration", from 1660. SE1, London Bridge Tube.
