“And so over the fields to Southwarke. I spent half an hour in St Mary Overy’s church, where are fine monuments of great antiquity.” Samuel Pepys – 21st July 1663
Southwark Cathedral stands to the glory of God.
We are committed to:
WORSHIP in this holy place
The 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 the mother church of the Anglican Diocese of Southwark.
