⛪ Churches ∙
Southwark Cathedral is the oldest church building in London. Formerly known as St Mary Overie ("over the river"), the parish church of Southwark only became a cathedral in 1905. Highlights include an ornate 16th-century screen behind the high altar, and the history of being the site of Roman pagan worship. Southwark was Shakespeare’s parish and he worshipped at the cathedral when he lived near the Globe Theatre, which is embodied in the Shakespeare’s Memorial statue.
