As one of the oldest areas of ancient London, Southwark encompasses a number of smaller parishes that now come under the City of London local authority. Back in the year 886 AD Southwark had a bridge that spanned the River Thames, so it became an important area in the founding of the city.

The most popular areas of Southwark for visitors to explore are between the district of Bankside and Borough, bordering the south bank of the Thames between Blackfriars Bridge and London Bridge.

You can find many attractions to visit here, such as the Tate Modern building, Southwark Cathedral, London’s oldest Gothic structure, Borough Market, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Millennium footbridge.

Also not to miss is the recreation of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, which holds many plays, tours and exhibitions of great interest, and plenty of unusual and notable small museums.
