Step out of the bustle of Borough Market and take a moment's solace within Southwark Cathedral, the stunning Mother Church of the Diocese of Southwark.

Originally a priory, the main structure of Southwark Cathedral was built between 1220 and 1420 with further additions, such as the nave, added in the late 19th century.

US university benefactor John Harvard was baptised here and the cathedral has links to Elizabethan theatre, including a memorial to William Shakespeare. 

The Cathedral is still very much an active London church and hosts a great number of events and programmes throughout the year. It’s also surrounded by the historic Borough Market – one of the capital’s biggest foodie attractions.
