Southwark Cathedral 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 Cathedral Church for the Anglican Diocese of Southwark, formed in 1905, covering 317 square miles and over 2.5 million people.
At the heart of William Shakespeare’s theatrical world was the building we now know as Southwark Cathedral. This was the scene of baptisms, burials and marriages for the actors and playwrights who graced the stage of Elizabethan theatre.
Our tour looks at the movers and shakers involved in the local theatres and entertainments and their connections with Southwark Cathedral, then known as St Saviours, Southwark. Visit the stone marking the burial of Shakespeare's brother, learn about the playwrights buried here and discover those who helped the church as they ran Southwark's theatreland.
