Southwark Cathedral

Southwark Cathedral

Main structure of the cathedral was built between 1220 & 1420.

Location: London Bridge, SE1 9DA

Description: The main structure of the cathedral was built between 1220 and 1420 - which makes this place rather special...Plus the fact that the film 'The Omen' was filmed nearby - worth a visit then.

This is the Anglican parish church of Southwark which became a cathedral early in the 20th century. St Swithin, of weather fame, founded a convent on the site which later became a monastery. Henry VIII's closure of the priory led to the main building becoming the parish church. William Shakespeare is believed to have been present when John Harvard, founder of the American university, was baptised here in 1607. This is the year that William's own brother Edmond was buried between the choir stalls. Nearby is the Shakespeare memorial.

And so over the fields to Southwarke. I spent half an hour in St Mary Overy's church, where are fine monuments of great antiquity. Samuel Pepys - 21st July 1663
