Southwark

" Southwark is a diverse, historical neighborhood, great for lovers of culture, art aficionados and foodies. "

Kim Snijders, our local from time to momo London

South of the Thames lies Southwark. Compared to the north side of London, this
side is somewhat underappreciated. Yet there are plenty of things to see on this
Southwark walk, including the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Tate Modern, City Hall, and Southwark Cathedral. London’s first theaters appeared in this neighborhood in the 16th century, including The Globe, where Shakespeare’s first performances were held. Borough Market is an absolute must for anyone who loves food.
