Historic Graffiti Tour of Southwark Cathedral

Tour Heritage

Medieval and historic graffiti can be found in churches, cathedrals, and other buildings all over the country, but did you know there are examples in Southwark Cathedral?

Join us on a 1.5 hour tour of the graffiti examples right here in Southwark Cathedral led by graffiti researcher Crystal Hollis. 

Learn how to find graffiti and what they tell us about the people of the past! Following the tour there will be time for questions and discussion of all things historic graffiti in a local pub.

We recommend you bring a small torch or ensure your mobile phone has a flashlight installed.

Crystal Hollis has been studying medieval graffiti for six years. Her enthusiasm about old buildings, community education, and history have led her to contribute to various web sites on the subject of graffiti as well as speak to a wide range of audiences. Her most notable work focused on the discovery of medieval inscriptions in a transplanted French chapel currently located in Milwaukee, WI USA.
