Sizzling Southwark

Sizzling Southwark

As Southwark was London's 1st borough, it supplied the City of London with all its needs. For centuries it became the entertainment centre for the City's young men looking for a bit of fun - from inns and brothels to theatres and bear baiting, from beer to food, Southwark had it all. But Southwark was not just about supplying its wealthy neighbour: living side by side with Southwark's poor were the Bishops of Winchester living in their grand palace and supporting the magnificent St Saviour's church, as Southwark Cathedral was then known. Nowadays, there is so much to see: the soaring arches and dramatic ceilings of the cathedral; the ruins of the once lavish Winchester Palace, the glorious Globe theatre and the life sized replica of the Golden Hinde, the boat that circumnavigated the globe in the 1570s. Add to that the fascinating tales of Southwark's history, intriguing explanations of phrases like Winchester geese and the truly spectacular views across London, you have a great tour!

Private Walking Tour from the Tower to the Tate

Private Walking Tour from the Tower to the Tate

Within a distance of no more than 2 miles, this tour is crammed with variety. The tour starts with the Tower of London built 900 years ago by William the Conqueror following his conquest of 1066 and ends at the Tate Modern, an art gallery in a refurbished power station opened by the Queen in May 2000. And there is so much to be enjoyed in between! There is no comparison between the crowded docks of days gone by and the tranquil gallerias which have taken over the old wharves with their charming shops, restaurants and bars of today! Moving to Bankside in Southwark, we can still see the magnificent Southwark Cathedral, the ruins of what was once the lavish home of the Bishops of Winchester and the magnificent new Globe theatre. And then there are the views as the centuries old skyline competes with the modern giants of the age. This is a tour of contrasts, from history and heritage to medicine and drama, it's a must. Oh, and there are coffee shops too so we can stop for a cuppa!
