The Globe Tavern

The Globe Tavern

Henry Jarvis

1872

London, London SW1

A railway bridge appears behind the pub, and Southwark Cathedral is just out of view at the right.

According to the pub's own plaque, its name was chosen under the mistaken belief that its site was on or near that of the Elizabethan theater of Shakespearean fame. It was, however, the location of two films, "Blue Ice starring Michael Caine & Bob Hoskins and more recently Bridget Jones' Diary."
