About Southwark Cathedral

Originally a priory, the main structure of Southwark Cathedral was built between 1220 and 1420; US university benefactor John Harvard was baptised here and the cathedral has links to Elizabethan theatre, including a memorial to William Shakespeare. The Cathedral is still very much an active London church and is the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark; it’s also surrounded by the historic Borough Market – one of the capital’s biggest foodie attractions. Learn more about the cathedral's history on the Southwark Cathedral website.
