"Southwark Cathedral" Southwark Cathedral Tip by planxty
Southwark Cathedral, London: 38 reviews and 103 photos
I have lived in London for many years and must have walked past this place literally hundreds of times without ever venturing inside. I recently rectified that omission and spent some time in what must be one of the most fascinating churches in London (and competition is fierce!)
A place of Christian worship for over 1000 years, there is every style of architecture here (predominantly Gothic), there are laid up colours of regiments long disbanded, a plethora of memorials, excellent stained glass and much more.
An interesting feature is the small St. Andrews chapel dedicated in 1991 to prayer for those afflicted with HIV / AIDS.
Admission is free, although there is a suggested donation of 4 pounds / 6:50 euros per person.
A genuine "must see."
Address: Montague Close, Southwark, London SE1
Directions: Come out of the main entrance of London Bridge Station and walk forward. The cathedral is the huge building across the road.
