Web Access

If you are looking for information on access onsite at Shakespeare's Globe, or for information on access tickets / assisted performances, please visit our Access section.


This website aims to conform to:

  • W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines
  • XHTML 1.0
  • CSS 2.0

Some Priority 3 guidelines are no longer relevant and are being dropped from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines v2.0. The following guidelines have therefore not been adhered to on this website:

  • 9.5 - Provide keyboard shortcuts to important links (including those in client-side image maps), form controls, and groups of form controls.
  • 10.4 - Until user agents handle empty controls correctly, include default, place-holding characters in edit boxes and text areas.

If you do come across any accessibility issues, please contact us on
