Southwark Cathedral

Sitting right next door to the Borough Market is the beautiful 13th century Southwark cathedral.

It has long been a favourite destination for John and I when visiting Londontown.

We think the gorgeous Gothic interior is a wonder and not to be missed.

It is home to fascinating grave monuments of the rich and famous of the neighbourhood.

I love this thirteenth century oak figure of a knight in his mail.

Let's end at the monument to the memory of the most famous local celebrity, William Shakespeare who wrote plays for the original Globe Theatre, attended services here and whose own brother, an actor, is buried here.
