Southwark Cathedral sits right in the heart of the community, with scents from the neighbouring Borough Market wafting through the cathedral garden. But the link is not only geographical: the cathedral clearly takes seriously its role to support and connect with its local community. At...More

This is a fairly new cathedral, built in 1800, so do not expect tombs of kings and queens. Having said that, it is a lovely area of peace and calm in an otherwise busy tourist area. Loos cost 50p a visit! But are really clean.

Next to Borough Market, Southwark Cathedral is an oasis of peace in this part of London so crowded. It is of Neogothic style, here you can admire: the tomb of John Gower, an Archeological Chamber, an alabaster statue of Shakespeare, the tomb of bishop Lancelot...More

After a long day in meetings I needed some spiritual guidance, so I stopped off at Southwark Cathedral. A lovely place with a peaceful air... if you need relegation in a spiritual place you cannot do any better.

Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
