The Globe has been meticulously rebuilt in as authentic a manner as possible. The building materials and the architecture of the theatre (including the only thatched roof in London) are as true to the time of Shakespeare as is possible given modern building codes and a lack of definitive information on the theatre. You can take a tour for about 12 pounds and learn about the secrets of the construction of the theatre as well as the workings of a typical Shakespeare play...including an explanation of the symbolism on the stage and the general mechanics of the productions. Plays are still performed from May to September (Shakespeare plays of course).
The Tate Modern is right next door and is a nice way to round out a trip to this side of the river.
