When & Where
Southwark Cathedral, which is the oldest gothic church in London, lies on the South Bank of the River Thames close to London Bridge on a site occupied by a Church for over one thousand years. The main structure of today's church was built between 1220 and 1420.
The Cathedral is also the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark and has seen all history throughout the ages past. As a result we welcome everyone from any background.
