Cathedral Tours for Groups


Southwark Cathedral has had a long and distinguished history.  In over 1400 years of Christian witness and mission, the church has seen the events of history unfold around it. Your tour with a Cathedral guide will uncover this rich and colourful history in a both informative and entertaining manner.

Discover why Southwark Cathedral is strongly associated with Winchester and why a former Bishop is buried here? Reveal the name of the famous London hospital that was founded by the church. Explore the many characters involved in the theatre of Shakespeare’s time who used the church regularly. All, and more, will be uncovered!

These tours usually run for an hour and a half. However we can run a shorter tour or a special programme can be developed for those wishing to specialize in literary links, architecture, or social history.
