Join Jennifer Hirschl, Blue Badge tourist guide, to discover Southwark’s history, past and present:Discover this ancient and historic part of London, a “liberty”, where wharves, theatres, breweries, coaching inns, prisons, and alehouses once thrived and flourished.
Today it continues to be an area rich in diversity and culture, with links to Chaucer, Shakespeare and Dickens. Highlights include Shakespeare’s Globe, Borough Market and Tate Modern.
We will meet in front of Leon on Tooley Street outside London Bridge Station, close to Battle Bridge Lane and should finish around 12.15pm at Tate Modern.
