Tours of Southwark Cathedral

From mid-July, we are delighted to be able to offer tours of the Cathedral

Discover the extraordinary history of the building and the people who visited this place of worship.  Southwark Cathedral has had a long and distinguished history with over 900 years of Christian witness and mission. The church has seen the events of history unfold around it, witnessing the lives of Bishops, Royalty and the Royal households, Shakespeare's contemporaries, the changing parishioners of the London Bridge area and the occasional cat or two.

Discover why Southwark Cathedral is strongly associated with Winchester. Learn about a Royal wedding. Uncover the name of the famous London hospital that was founded by the church. Discover which writer visited to ring the bells.

Your tour with a Cathedral guide will uncover this rich and colourful history in a both informative and entertaining manner. To book a one hour tour for yourself, visit our Eventbrite page here
