Event description

Description

Since becoming a significant settlement in Roman times, Southwark has laid claim to being London’s most historic borough. Explore the unique history of this part of London, which during medieval times became London’s centre of debauchery and depravity with its pubs, prostitutes, playhouses and the worst prison in London. From bear pits to brothels, and prisons to playhouses this walk will give you an insight into the London that inspired Shakespeare. Along the way, marvel at the contrast between historic and present day Southwark by discovering the stories behind some of London's most iconic modern structures - the Shard, Millennium Bridge and Tate Modern.
