Although this church was not established as a cathedral until 1905, some buildings in this church even date back to the 12th century, and there are also a large number of medieval art works.
The area where the church was located was an illegal entertainment area in the past, so the church was not recognized as a cathedral until the beginning of the 20th century, but it is very beautiful, and there are still many medieval buildings.
South Bank Church is not as magnificent as other London cathedrals, but has some amazing medieval and Tudor tombs and portraits. My favorite is Shakespeare's memorial, which is decorated with gorgeous stained glass windows with many drama scenes.
Absolutely stunning church just next to Borough Market which miraculously escaped bombing in WWII. Lots of lovely concerts and performances take place here, so even if you're not religious, it's worth a visit. Claim to fame: Mick Jaggers daughter was married here.
Gorgeous Anglican cathedral on the South Bank near London Bridge. Dwarfed by all the development around it, it seems an odd kind of religious oasis in the sea of modernity.
One of the oldest churches in London but its newest cathedral. A place of calm on the Southbank. Look out for the cat that has moved into the Cathedral!
Southwark Cathedral has been around for more than 1,000 years making it one of the oldest churches in London. It's located on the south side of the Thames River and is known for its Gothic-style architecture.
